Restoring A Revoked Or Suspended Illinois Driver’s License
Having your license revoked is not simply an inconvenience. It can have lasting effects on your employment, your day-to-day life and your overall access to transportation. There are several reasons why your license may be suspended or revoked by the Illinois Secretary of State. However, a knowledgeable attorney can guide you through the reinstatement process, helping you regain your driving privileges.
At Spector | Baker Attorneys and Counselors at Law, attorney Michael E. Baker has decades of experience assisting clients with reinstating their driving privileges following a DUI conviction. During that time, he has helped countless individuals in Evanston and Chicago and across Cook County in their pursuit of license reinstatement.
What’s The Difference Between A Suspension And A Revocation?
Both suspensions and revocations signify the loss of your driving privileges. However, typically, a suspension has an end date, while revocations require a hearing before the Secretary of State to regain your ability to drive.
There are several reasons for a suspension, including:
- Traffic violations
- Failure to appear in court
- Parking violations
- Safety responsibility violations
- Failure to pay child support
To have your license reinstated after revocation, you may request an informal or formal hearing with the Secretary of State. In certain instances, an informal hearing can be obtained to seek driving relief. However, if you require a formal hearing, Mr. Baker can prepare you to give you the best chance for success and reinstatement of your driving privileges.
In either of these situations, the guidance of an experienced attorney can be invaluable. Spector | Baker Attorneys and Counselors at Law can help you realistically assess your situation and provide a pathway for your license reinstatement.
