Understanding The Consequences Of A Revocation

Being charged with a DUI can have a number of repercussions. Depending on the number of times you have received a DUI, as well as the severity and the nature under which you received the DUI, can all play a key factor in the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license.

Understanding A Revocation

Revocation of a driver’s license is a much more serious offense than a suspension. When one has been convicted of a DUI, this often times results in the revocation of your license. However, in the state of Illinois, many first time offenders may receive supervision. Since supervision is not a conviction, this will not be a cause for revocation, but only if your first offense did not involve injury or other aggravating circumstances.

Unlike the suspension of a license, revocation can be forever. In order to get your license back, The Secretary of State requires that your record be clean, you must obtain a drug and alcohol evaluation, as well as treatment, and you must appear at your hearing.

Get The Help You Need

When you have been charged with a DUI, your driver’s license will be suspended for a set period of time. During this time, you are not allowed to drive, and you may file a petition with the court in order to reverse your suspension. Before filing a petition, it is critical to consult with a criminal defense attorney, which will give you a better chance of success.

A criminal attorney can be a great asset when it comes to recovering your driver’s license. If your license has been revoked, your attorney will be essential in effective representation with the courts, utilizing a strategic plan in order to get your license back.
