Westmont DUI license reinstatement attorney

By far, one of the most common ways that Illinoisians lose their driving privileges is by being arrested or convicted of driving under the influence (DUI). Illinois law states that any person who fails, refuses to submit to, or does not complete a chemical test to determine their blood-alcohol content (BAC) is subject to a statutory summary suspension of their license. This suspension length is six months for a failed chemical test, meaning a driver’s BAC was 0.08 or higher. If a driver refuses to take a chemical test, they will have their driver’s license suspended for one year. Statutory summary suspensions are administrative actions, independent from any criminal actions taken against a person’s driver’s license due to being convicted of DUI. 

Losing your driving privileges can make life extremely difficult because you most likely depend on your ability to drive to get yourself to and from work. If your driver’s license has been suspended or revoked because of a DUI arrest or charge, do not fret. You can get your license back with a little bit of effort and the assistance of a skilled attorney. In any case, you will have to attend either a formal or informal hearing to have your license reinstated. The type of hearing required to get you back behind the wheel depends on the nature of your revocation or suspension.
