Driver’s License Reinstatements in Illinois
Getting your license reinstated or obtaining a restricted driving permit (RDP) is often a lengthy and difficult process. The first step is to request a hearing through the Secretary of State Department of Administrative Hearings. Depending on your driving history, you may have an informal (with just a hearing officer) or a formal hearing (with a lawyer for the Secretary of State and a hearing officer). Prior to your hearing, you will be required to provide certain paperwork to prove why you should regain your driving privileges. If your license is suspended because of a DUI, you will need to obtain an alcohol evaluation by a certified alcohol evaluator.
Many people do not think they need an attorney to get through the driver’s license reinstatement process. While it is true that legal representation is not required, you are far more likely to have a favorable result if you are properly represented. Providing the minimum required paperwork is rarely ever enough to get your license back. Additionally, you will be asked numerous questions about your life during your hearing. An experienced attorney can prepare you for these questions and prevent you from unintentionally hurting your chances for driving relief. Attorney Eugene “Gino” Fimbianti is extensively experienced in this area of the law. He will guide you through this process and help present your case for reinstatement in the best possible light.
