What is a Restricted Driving Permit?

Posted by John Callahan | Oct 13, 2014 | 0 Comments

I have been representing clients charged with DUI in Illinois, around the Schaumburg and Chicago areas for over 17 years. If your license has been revoked for a DUI, you should consider obtaining a Restricted Driving Permit in order to become eligible for your driving privileges to be reinstated.
 If eligible, a person convicted of DUI may apply to the Secretary of State's Office for a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP). An RDP allows a person to drive on a restricted basis according to their permit. An offender must appear before a hearing officer in the Secretary of State's Department of Administrative Hearings. The driving record is reviewed to ensure that the driver would not threaten public safety if allowed to drive on a limited basis. To obtain an RDP, you may have to prove a hardship exists, provide a current professional alcohol and drug evaluation, and provide proof of remedial education or treatment. An offender with two or more alcohol-related driving incidents on their driving record within 10 years is required to have a BAIID installed in their vehicle for the duration of the RDP. A multiple offender is not eligible for an RDP during the statutory summary suspension period. A driver under age 16 whose driving privileges are revoked is also not eligible for an RDP.
 If you need help getting your license reinstated after a DUI conviction or have any questions about the license reinstatement process, feel free to contact our office for more information about obtaining a Restricted Driving Permit after a DUI.
