Illinois license reinstatement questions.


Should I do an out-of-state hearing packet for DUI revocation?

Posted by John Callahan | Jan 14, 2015 | 0 Comments

I talk to people every day about getting their license cleared up after being revoked for a DUI in Illinois. The license reinstatement process is not an easy process if you have never handled it. I compare it to having appendicitis. You might be able to find your appendix but would you trust yourself to remove it during surgery? No way! Handling your own license reinstatement process after being revoked for a driving under the influence charge in Illinois is the same example.
 Because so many people who contact me live outside of Illinois, I am often asked the question should I mail in the out-of-state hearing application that the Secretary of State provides. My answer is always that if the money was mine, I would not waste my time filling out the out-of-state hearing application. Why? Because I believe that many people take the out-of-state hearing packet too lightly and do not treat it how it should be treated in the first place; it should be treated like a formal administrative hearing.
 I would recommend that if you live outside the state of Illinois and are looking to clear your license or obtain full reinstatement of your Illinois driving privileges so that you can then obtain a license in your home state, that you contact my office to discuss the steps necessary to get your license cleared up through the formal administrative hearing process.
