Illinois license reinstatement questions.


What is the difference between having your license suspended and your license revoked?

Posted by John Callahan | Oct 04, 2014 | 0 Comments

I have been representing drivers in Illinois, around the Chicago, Barrington, and Schaumburg areas, in license reinstatement cases for almost two decades. In Illinois, your driver's license can be suspended or revoked by the IL Secretary of State for several reasons, including not paying your traffic tickets, having too many traffic violations, failing to pay child support, and a DUI.
 A suspended license is lost only temporarily. By law, the driver is entitled to have his license reinstated after he serves the suspension and pays his reinstatement fee. A revoked license, on the other hand, can constitute a permanent deprivation of driving privileges. When a person is revoked, he is not entitled to have his license reinstated unless and until he satisfies the Secretary of State that he should be reinstated. And so, a revoked license can last indefinitely.
 Most of my license reinstatement clients are revoked from a DUI conviction. They do not need to wait until they are eligible for full reinstatement but can apply for a hearing with the Secretary of State when they are eligible for a restricted driver's permit.
 If your license has been suspended or revoked, it is important to contact our office to speak with an experienced license reinstatement attorney to learn your options and how to overcome a license suspension or revocation.
