Suspended / Revoked Driver’s License Attorney in Will County

Driving is a privilege in Illinois – the Illinois Secretary of State’s office (SOS) can suspend or revoke your driver’s license for many different reasons. If driving privileges have been suspended or revoked, you must take action to get your driver’s license reinstated. After your driving suspension ends, your driver’s license is not just automatically reinstated by the state – there are steps that need to be taken to restore your driving privileges.

Driver’s License Suspension

A driver’s license suspension is the loss of driving privileges for a specified time period. Depending on the offense, the suspension period may last for a few months, up to many years. When the time period ends, the driver may take action to get their driver’s license reinstated.

These can include:

  • DUI – Driving Under the Influence
  • Driving Without Insurance
  • Failure to Appear in Court 
  • Failure to Pay Child Support
  • Unpaid Parking Violations
  • Unpaid Red Light Tickets
  • Unpaid Tollway Violations
  • Traffic Violations (multiple moving violations within twelve months can result in a suspension)

Revoked Driver’s License

A driver’s license revocation is more serious than a driver’s license suspension. This means that you have lost your driving privileges indefinitely. Most revocations have a minimum time period – after that time period actions can be taken to restore your driving privileges. A DUI conviction can result in the revocation of your driver’s license – in Illinois, even if you are never convicted of a DUI you may still receive a driving suspension. A statutory summary suspension or revocation is the automatic suspension or revocation of driving privileges in Illinois when a driver is arrested for DUI and then “fails”, refuses to submit to, or fails to complete chemical testing.

Restricted Driver’s Permit

You may be able to get a restricted driver’s permit (RDP) if you cannot get your driver’s license fully reinstatement. The restricted driver’s permit will only allow you to drive to get to work or other important places.
