As a license reinstatement lawyer in Illinois, I have several people ask me every week just how long the license reinstatement process will take after being revoked for a DUI conviction. The following example is typical, but the results do vary for every different client I have.
We typically do not apply for the license reinstatement hearing until we have received documents from the Secretary of State and received all of the data required to take our clients to the hearing. This process takes approximately one month.
At that point we typically apply for the formal license reinstatement hearing and, lately, the Secretary of State has been scheduling hearings approximately 60 days from the date that we mail the application.
The next step is to have a succesful hearing and waiting for the results. As you know, the Secretary of State has 90 days to give you the results from your formal administrative hearing to reinstate your license after a DUI conviction. Typically, however, it takes approximately 60 to 75 days to obtain the results from your formal administrative hearing.
If you're looking to obtain clearance of your Illinois drivers license or you want to have a successful formaladministrative hearing after a DUI conviction, feel free to contact the law offices of John W Callahan limited to help you clear your license or obtain a restricted driving permit depending on your eligibility.
Total time as of 11-20-2016 is about 90-150 days from start to finish.
