Driver’s License Reinstatement
Arlington Heights Criminal Defense Attorney
Whether you drive for work or need your vehicle to complete weekly errands,
the loss of your driving privileges can wreak havoc in your daily life.
However, if you have had your driver’s license suspended or revoked
by the Illinois Secretary of State (SOS), you may be able to fight to
have your license reinstated. There may be a limited amount of time in
which to request a hearing, such as with alcohol related offenses, so
it is critical to act quickly. At Ahmad Law Firm, our
Arlington Heights criminal defense attorneys possess substantial experience helping clients reinstate their driving
privileges and fight criminal, administrative, and traffic related charges.
Possible reasons for a License Suspension can include:
- Traffic citations
- Contempt of court
- Parking violations
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
There is no time to waste. Request a FREE consultation
and speak with an attorney about your legal options.
Requesting an Informal or Formal Hearing
How you proceed with your case and the type of hearing you can request
will depend on the type and nature of your offense. In Illinois, there
are two types of license suspension hearings: Informal and formal. The
first step is to request a consultation with a hearing officer, who will
determine your eligibility.
You may request an informal hearing if:
- No fatalities resulted from an offense
- This is the first DUI offense
- The suspension resulted from minor moving violations
A formal hearing must be requested if:
- This is your second or subsequent DUI offense
- A fatality occurred
Your hearing will result in either the full restoration of your driver’s
license, a restricted driving permit, or the denial of restored driving
privileges. You will typically receive a decision by mail within 90 days.
