Illinois license reinstatement questions.


Will I have to go to rehab to get my license back in Illinois?

Posted by John Callahan | May 07, 2014 | 0 Comments

I just had someone ask me if they had to go to rehabilitation to be eligible to get their license back in Illinois. The answer to that question is typically, no. The Secretary of State of Illinois lists the requirements for various levels of risk treatment that a person must complete before they get their license back. In fact, before a person is even eligible to have a hearing with the Secretary of State, they must comply with these requirements.

It is important to note that even at the highest risk level which is Level III-dependent classification, no rehab is required. While no rehabilitation is required, a minimum of 75 hours of alcohol treatment is required. This can be completed in a rehab environment but it is not required. Also, aftercare is typically required for approximately one year by the treatment provider.

It is also important to note that if the client has completed 75 hours of treatment and is a Level III, he or she should be prepared to provide proof to the Secretary of State that they have active participation in Alcoholics Anonymous or have their own support group that helps keep them sober.

If you have any questions about clearing your license in Illinois or proceeding to a formal administrative hearing with the Secretary of State, you can contact John W Callahan who has helped hundreds of clients reinstate their license in Illinois.
