Secretary of State Reinstatement Hearings
Illinois Reinstatement Procedures
Driver’s License Reinstatement Procedures
The Secretary of State is required to revoke your driver’s license if you are convicted of driving under the influence (DUI, DWI or drunk driving). After being so revoked, you may only obtain driving relief through the Secretary of State Department of Administrative Hearings.
You are very unlikely to obtain a license or restricted driving permit merely by providing the minimum documents to the Secretary of State, promising never to drink and drive again, claiming to have “learned my lesson” and describing the hardship that not having a license has caused you. If it were that easy, there would not be so many revoked drivers out there, risking being thrown into jail and even prison because they have not solved the Secretary of State mystery.
The Secretary of State’s rules are the same for a restricted driving permit (work permit or hardship license) as they are for a full license. He will not ease up on any of the requirements, regardless of the relief you request and the severity of your hardship.
