Will I have to go to hearing for a license reinstatement?

Posted by John Callahan | May 27, 2014 | 0 Comments

Many people ask me if they will have to go to a hearing for a license reinstatement in Illinois. It depends. Typically, if you have been arrested for a DUI and were found guilty in another state or if you have been found guilty of a DUI and convicted in Illinois, you will have to go to a hearing with the Secretary of State in Illinois before your license is reinstated or cleared. Once the Secretary of State finds out that you have been convicted for a DUI, you will be required to go to an administrative hearing to get your license back in Illinois.

Before you can actually have your hearing with the Secretary of State, they require that you are evaluated by a licensed treatment provider and you also must complete the treatment pursuant to that licensed treatment provider's recommendations. If you have not completed your treatment and you do not bring the proper documentation down to the Secretary of State, they will not even let you in the door to have a hearing.

If you need to get your license cleared in Illinois because of a driving under the influence of alcohol charge, feel free to contact me at anytime as I have been concentrating in DUI defense and license reinstatement matters for more than a decade.
