What is the typical license reinstatement scenario?

Posted by John Callahan | Jan 19, 2015 | 0 Comments

The license reinstatement process is complex, but the most common scenario when someone calls me for a revocation question in Illinois is the following: the client was convicted of his second DUI offense that occurred in Illinois. Typically, if a person is arrested for a DUI in Illinois he will be offered court supervision which is not a conviction on his first DUI arrest. Court supervision in the criminal court buildings does not result in a revocation from the Illinois Secretary of State.
 Only if a client is found guilty of a second DUI charge in Illinois will the license typically be revoked. That is because the first DUI does not normally result in a conviction. After being found guilty of a second DUI offense in Illinois, the criminal court will enter a judgment of conviction and sentence the defendant to conditional discharge. Conditional discharge will be spotted by the Secretary of State and they will issue the revocation at that point.
 There are many other ways that a person can be revoked in Illinois but the above scenario is the most typical. If you have been convicted of a DUI offense and your license is revoked in Illinois, feel free to contact John W Callahan to assist you with your license revocation matter.
