Illinois Driver's License Suspension

Has your license been suspended? We can help you fight for your rights. Since reinstatement must be pursued before the Secretary of State, the process of reversing or undoing a driver’s license suspension can be especially difficult within Illinois. Reinstatement is best pursued at the same time as criminal defense and should be undertaken by a legal professional who understands both facets of the DUI system and has the resources and track record necessary to defend your interests.

Statutory Summary Suspension

In Illinois, state law allows for the immediate suspension of the license of someone who fails chemical testing, refuses to submit to such testing, or fails to complete such testing. These suspensions are in addition to any driver’s license suspensions or revocations that result from a DUI conviction and must be challenged before the Illinois Secretary of State through a formal hearing and revocation process.

Other License Suspensions

Criminal license suspensions can affect underage drivers with especial force. Anyone found driving under the influence (BAC over 0.00%) before they turn 21 will immediately face a two-year license suspension regardless of the circumstances or whether they were driving safely at the time. In addition, drivers who hold a commercial driver’s license face extended suspensions, with an automatic year-long CDL suspension occurring when they receive their first DUI and a lifetime disqualification of their CDL on the second offense.
