A License Suspension Or Revocation Isn’t The End Of Your Time Behind The Wheel
Many of us heavily rely on our ability to drive to get through our daily lives. From the morning commute to work to dropping your children off at school and running errands, it is difficult to imagine life without the convenience of our own vehicles. If your driver’s license in Illinois is suspended or revoked, it can impact every area of your life.
While the process of reinstating your license may be overwhelming, working with an experienced attorney can make the process easier and increase your chances of successfully getting your license back. At Consumer Law Group, our Chicago-based lawyers have over 30 decades of combined experience helping clients throughout Illinois fight their charges and get back on the road.
Common Reasons For License Suspension Or Revocation In Illinois
There are a variety of reasons that your license can be suspended or revoked in Illinois, including:
- Prior Illinois license under false name or social security number
- Leaving the scene of an accident involving injury or death
- Three reckless driving offenses in 12 months
- Three or more continuous moving violations
- Failure to pay tickets
Whether your license is suspended or revoked depends on why you lost driving privileges. Serious criminal convictions, such as getting a DUI as multiple offenders, likely lead to a revocation over a suspension.
How Can You Get Your License Reinstated?
Depending on the reason for your suspension or revocation, you may lose your driving privileges for three months to a five-year ban. Once your suspension ends, you can pay the Illinois Secretary of State a reinstatement fee. After you pay the fee, you will regain your driving privileges.
What Is The Difference Between A License Suspension And Revocation in Illinois?
A license suspension is for a set amount of time or until you pay the reinstatement fee. A revocation is indefinite and is not automatically reinstated with the payment of a fee. However, you may have an opportunity to earn your privileges back.
