What are the circumstances in which a driver's license may get revoked? How can I get my revoked Illinois driver's license reinstated?
Unlike a driver's license suspension, there is no automatic or set reinstatement date for a revocation. In Illinois, your license can be revoked by the Secretary of State for a number of reasons, such as:
- DUI conviction(s)
- Eluding police
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Felonies involving motor vehicles
- Excessive traffic violations
- Using a false ID/fake driver's license
If your Illinois driver's license has been revoked, you will need to attend a formal or informal hearing with the Secretary of State to get your driver's license reinstated. Having an experienced attorney representing you during this process is crucial. I always tell my clients – the Secretary of State hearing is not like a high school test where if you score a 90% or better you pass. You need to make sure you are well prepared and get every question right. If you get everything right – you will get back on the road legally on the first try.
