Reinstatement of License Following Suspension or Revocation
Upon suspension of your license, your driving privileges will be taken away temporarily. When your suspension period ends, your driver’s license will be reinstated. If your license is revoked however, you lose your driving privileges indefinitely. To be granted reinstatement following a revocation, you must attend an administrative hearing in front of the Illinois Secretary of State.
A suspension results from less serious traffic violation offenses, when compared to offenses that result in a revocation. A license revocation may occur as a result of offenses such as a DUI or leaving the scene of an accident that ended up being fatal or resulted in a personal injury.
How Do I Gain License Reinstatement?
Depending on the severity of your traffic violation, in order to be granted reinstatement, either a formal or informal administrative hearing is required. In the case of both of these hearings, you are responsible for effectively demonstrating to the State that reinstatement would not result in you posing as a danger to others on the road. Without the help of experienced legal counsel, this is an extremely difficult task to execute. With so much on the line, the involvement of a lawyer who has experience in these cases is crucial. The right lawyer will be familiar with the legal strategies necessary for maximizing your case resolution.
