In Illinois your driver’s license may be revoked if you are convicted of Driving under the influence (DUI), various traffic offenses, or another offense involving a fatality. However, revocation or suspension of your license may not be permanent. Drivers who seek to have their driver’s license reinstated can request an administrative hearing with the Secretary of State.
INFORMAL CARBONDALE REVOKED LICENSE HEARINGS
If a driver’s license has been suspended or revoked for an offense not involving a fatality, a single DUI arrest, or for a sanction related to lesser moving violations, the driver will be questioned in an informal Southern Illinois hearing. Informal hearings can result in a restricted driver’s license or a full reinstatement of driving privileges. It is important to speak to an experienced Southern Illinois Secretary of State hearing attorney before attending an informal hearing in order to make certain that you have the best opportunity to have your driving privileges restored.
FORMAL MARION SECRETARY OF STATE HEARINGS
When a driver’s license has been suspended or revoked due to multiple DUIs or a fatality-related offense, it may be possible to request a formal hearing. In order to obtain a formal hearing, it is necessary to make a written request to the Secretary of State. During a formal hearing, the Secretary of State may ask many detailed and intense questions, which can include the details of the arrest; if the driver has experienced any symptoms of alcohol abuse and dependence; and if the individual made any changes to their life since the arrest. A hearing officer will provide a summary in a written report including a decision which is usually mailed in 4-8 weeks.
