Illinois Driver's License Lawyer 

At Kuchinski Law Group, we are driver's license reinstatement lawyers in Illinois who specialize in helping individuals who have had their licenses suspended or revoked get them reinstated as quickly and smoothly as possible. As Chicago traffic lawyers, we deeply understand Illinois traffic laws and can guide you through the steps you need to take. 

Reasons for Revoking or Suspending a Driver's License 

In Illinois, having a driver's license is a privilege, not a right. That's why it could be suspended if you commit certain traffic violations or criminal offenses.

Suspension means that your driving privileges are temporarily taken away. Revocation, on the other hand, means they are terminated. The latter is usually for a more extended period, and you will need to go through a process to regain your license. The length depends on the offense committed, and you must comply with specific requirements before reinstating it.

Now, let's talk about the reasons for possible suspension. Here are some of the common ones:

  1. DUI - Driving under the influence or while intoxicated is a serious offense that can result in immediate license suspension. Suppose a person has a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of.08 or higher, has used illegal drugs, or is affected by medication. In that case, they are considered to be driving under the influence. 
  2. Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) - If found guilty of a serious felony or moving violation, young drivers are subject to certain restrictions. You could be suspended if you drive recklessly and endanger other people's lives.
  3. Failure to Show Up - If a driver receives a traffic ticket and the fine is not paid, a Failure to Appear Suspension is recorded against his license and privileges. The Circuit Clerk's office in Illinois or an equivalent agency from another state requests the suspension entry. The court or agency that ordered the suspension must submit a Final Disposition to the Secretary of State's office. A reinstatement fee can be needed to get this kind of suspension lifted.
  4. Debtors Don't Drive - If you fail to pay traffic fines or other fees, your license could be suspended until you pay them. The Family Financial Responsibility Law allows suspending a person's driver's license if they fail to make court-ordered child support payments.

These are just a few examples of why your license could be suspended. It's important to remember that even if you have a suspended license, you should not drive until it has been reinstated. Otherwise, you could face serious legal consequences. 

How Do I Get My Driver's License Reinstated in Illinois? 

It could be a complicated process, especially if you lack the legal knowledge and expertise to navigate the system. Fortunately, the Kuchinski Chicago license reinstatement lawyer is here to help. 

The first step is to determine your offense in the first place. Common reasons include DUI convictions, excessive points on your driving record, failure to pay traffic fines, and more. 

Once you understand the reason, the next step is to pursue a formal or informal review. The type of review you follow will depend on the circumstances of your case, but we can guide you through the process and help you choose the best course of action. 

We'll gather evidence, prepare arguments, and present your case to the Illinois Secretary of State's Office during the review process. This can be complex and time-consuming, but our attorneys know how to navigate the system and increase your chances of success. 

If you're reinstated, you may need to complete specific requirements before getting back behind the wheel, such as paying fines in the form of reinstatement fees attending driver education classes, or installing an ignition interlock device. We'll help you understand and complete these requirements, ensuring you fully comply with Illinois law. 

How Long Does It Take to Reinstate a License in Illinois

When the Secretary of State issues you a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP), you will receive a list of conditions to satisfy before your permit is issued. You must finish all prerequisites and submit them as soon as you can. It usually takes three to five weeks to receive the real RDP in the mail after all requirements have been filed to the Secretary of State. The requirements are less if you are given full reinstatement. For instance, you'll have to buy SR-22 insurance and pay your reinstatement fees. Once these conditions have been met, you can typically get your permit in two to three business days.
