Illinois license reinstatement questions.


What is the basis for the Secretary of State to suspend or revoke your license?

Posted by John Callahan | Nov 26, 2014 | 0 Comments

I have been representing clients who have been charged with a DUI, around the Schaumburg and Chicago areas, for over 17 years. Many clients have asked me what charges will cause their license to be suspended or revoked.
 The withdrawal by the Secretary of State of a person's license or privilege to operate a motor vehicle on the public highways can be for varying periods of time depending on the offense, whether this was a first or subsequent offense, and aggravating circumstances. The bases for this withdrawal of driving privileges shall be the individual's refusal to submit to or failure to complete a chemical test or tests following an arrest for the offense of driving under the influence of alcohol, other drugs, or intoxicating compounds, or any combination thereof, or submission to such a test or tests indicating an alcohol concentration of 0.08. The statutory summary suspension or revocation and disqualification shall take effect on the 46th day following the date the notice of the statutory summary suspension or revocation was given to the person. Reinstatement after the suspension period shall occur after all appropriate fees have been paid.
 While there are many other reasons that your license can be suspended or revoked, it seems that the most common way to lose your driving privileges is because of a DUI or driving under the influence of alcohol arrest. We concentrate on preventing all of our clients loss of license privileges.
 For more information about getting your driving privileges reinstated after a DUI, or more importantly, preventing your license from being suspended or revoked in the first place, take a look at some of our successful cases or contact our office to speak with a DUI defense attorney.
