How to Reinstate Your Driver's License in IL

Has Your License Been Suspended or Revoked? Call (309) 874-4147

You are fully eligible to represent yourself at your driver's license reinstatement hearing, and many people in your situation do. Choosing this option, however, is often a serious mistake. You are not, however, entitled to reinstatement of your driving privileges, and the burden of proof in the case is entirely on you.

Why Choose Our Illinois Driver’s License Lawyers?

  • Nearly 100 years of combined legal experience
  • Personalized strategies and tireless representation
  • 100s of driver's license reinstatement hearings under our belts
  • Award-winning team with a proven track record of success

Without a thorough understanding of the applicable laws and procedure involved in petitioning for reinstatement, the odds are against you in the situation, and there is a high likelihood that your request will be denied. Given the hardship inflicted by a license suspension or revocation — making it difficult to commute to work, to get your children to and from school and to carry out your daily errands — you have too much at stake to afford to take any chances with the outcome of your case. Instead, let a proven Illinois driver's license attorney from our team fight for you.

Our Firm Can Help You Regain Your License

Under Illinois state law, you are only allowed to be cited for 3 traffic violations in a 12-month period before the secretary of state will move to suspend or revoke your driver's license.

The length of the suspension depends on the number of points assigned to the violations you were convicted of committing, such as:

  • 55 points for reckless driving
  • 20 points for disregarding a traffic-control light
  • 10 points for improper turn at an intersection

Certain offenses can result in an immediate suspension or revocation, such as driving without liability insurance, driving under the influence (DUI) or possession of cannabis. Whatever the reason that you lost your driving privileges, you can find help pursuing reinstatement of your license by contacting us at Johnson Law Group for a free case evaluation.

Get back on the road with the help of our driver's license lawyers!

Contrary to popular assumptions, driving on the roads of Illinois is a privilege, not a right. This privilege can be suspended or revoked by the Secretary of State, leaving you unable to drive to work, take your children to school, and carry out the countless other routine tasks that require you to drive on a daily basis. If you are caught driving while your license is suspended, you can be hit with an even longer suspension or be sent to jail. To avoid such penalties,you have two options: You can wait out the period of your suspension or revocation or you can hire an Illinois driver's license attorney to represent you at a hearing in an attempt to regain your driving privileges early.

Unfortunately, becoming eligible for reinstatement can be difficult, particularly without any prior legal experience. You are not alone, however. Johnson Law Group is here to help you achieve the favorable outcome you need and resume your daily obligations.

What is involved in the driver's license reinstatement hearing?

The decision to grant or deny your request for restored driving privileges is largely based on what happens at your reinstatement hearing. At this hearing, you will have to provide evidence that you have fully corrected the issues that led to the suspension or revocation of your license, as well as demonstrate that you are now capable of driving responsibly. This phase of the hearing often involves questioning about your driving history and substance abuse and you must be prepared to give appropriate answers.

The entire process can be stressful and confusing, and a large percentage of people who attempt it on their own reach the end of the ordeal without any success. Give yourself the best possible chances of getting your license back quickly by working with an attorney from the team of former prosecutors at Johnson Law Group.
