Assisting Naperville Residents with Driver’s License Reinstatements
At John M. Quinn & Associates Ltd, we strive hard to get those with suspended or revoked licenses back driving on the roads again as soon as possible. We are based in Illinois and have nearly two decades of experience in license reinstatement, revoked licenses and DUI license suspensions. If you live in Naperville or the surrounding area and have a suspended or revoked license, you should read on to see how we can help you.
Drivers can receive a number of traffic violations that can lead to a suspended or revoked license. Repeat evasion of tolls or parking fines and driving around without adequate insurance, are common causes. If you fail to make child maintenance payments the law may strip you of your freedom to drive.
IL DUI License Suspension
Driving under the influence (DUI) can lead to the severest penalties you will find for traffic violations. In Illinois, the first DUI offense is recorded as a misdemeanor.
The Office of the Illinois Secretary of State has hardened their stance on DUI offenses over the past 25 years. These days a string of previous offenses will lead to a more permanent revocation. A second conviction within 20 years will ensure a 5-year revocation. Three DUI convictions will mean a 10-year revocation for the third offense. With a fourth conviction, you could be banned from driving for life and only be allowed to drive on a restricted driving permit.
If you are a Naperville resident who commutes by car to your job, a revoked license can mean serious hardship. Be aware that your license is not automatically reinstated at the end of the time periods set out when you are revoked . If you do not apply for license reinstatement through a hearing, then it will still remain illegal for you to drive. If you drive without having completed the legal process to reinstate your license, the repercussions could be severe. Only if your license was suspended, do your driving rights automatically return after the suspension period has ended and you pay the reinstatement fee.
If you are suffering the hardship of being without a driver’s license in Naperville, we can help you out. If you cannot commute to work other than by car or you are booked in for a series of medical consultations, we can help you apply for a special hardship license. This restricts your car journeys to specific destinations, such as your workplace, school, or hospital. You must prove your circumstances qualify you for restricted driving privileges, but we will prepare you in full for the hearing.
Dealing With a Revoked License in IL

You can apply for your license reinstatement on your own, but you would be far better advised to engage the services of an attorney.
