Illinois license reinstatement questions.


What evaluator should I use for my license reinstatement hearing?

Posted by John Callahan | Jan 17, 2015 | 0 Comments

When people call me questions about the license reinstatement process in Illinois, the first thing that we try to determine is whether or not they have the proper treatment documents. I always tell these people that having a hearing with the Secretary of State is like going to a sporting event or a concert. If you do not have a ticket to get into the show, you can't get in. In the same light, if you do not have the right treatment documents when you arrive for your license reinstatement hearing with the Illinois Secretary of State, you will not be allowed to have a hearing.
 I often see the same problem over and over. After someone is arrested for his second or third DUI, there are evaluator will try to minimize or lighten the amount of classes that the person is required to attend. This does not help in the long run as if the Secretary of State thinks that you are minimizing your alcohol problem you will be denied a restricted driving permit or full reinstatement of your drivers license. The best evaluators in the state of Illinois know that minimizing is dangerous and that full disclosure and honesty even if it looks bad initially can actually help the client with the Secretary of State hearing.
 If you're looking to get your license cleared up in Illinois after a license revocation due to a driving under the influence of alcohol charge, contact John W Callahan at anytime to discuss your matter before you obtain your updated treatment documents so that he can assess whether or not he believes the Secretary of State will find the documents believable.
