Difference Between a License Suspension and Revocation in Illinois
Many criminal offenses in Illinois, and not just traffic offenses, call for the suspension or revocation of the accused person's driver's license. Many drivers do not understand the difference between a license suspension and revocation in Illinois or the types of offenses that can lead to them. It is important to know what penalties you are facing in the event that you are charged with a crime.
I am Elgin driver's license defense attorney Brian J. Mirandola. I provide comprehensive criminal defense representation to clients throughout Kane County. No matter what type of penalties your drunk driving offense might call for, I will do everything in my power to minimize the impact on you and your family.
Understanding License Suspension
The majority of DUI offenses in Illinois call for license suspensions of varying lengths. A first offense DUI, for example, calls for a one-year suspension of your driver's license. A second offense will result in a three-year suspension. Once the suspension has been served, most drivers are required to pay a reinstatement fee before their driving privileges are restored.
License Revocation In Illinois
If you are convicted of a third DUI, your driver's license will be revoked for a minimum of 10 years. A fourth conviction will result in the lifetime revocation of your driver's license. You have the option of requesting a Secretary of State hearing to have your license reinstated. In order to be successful, it must be shown that reinstating your license would pose no danger to the public safety or welfare. I can represent you at these hearings and present the strongest possible argument to have your license reinstated.
