Peoria lawyer assisting with license reinstatements after a DUI or a suspension

The state of Illinois will suspend or rescind a resident’s driver’s license for multiple reasons. Common examples include:

  • A driver who has more than fourteen points against their license may face penalties ranging from a two month suspension to a full revocation
  • A driver who has received a DUI will often find their license suspended sixty days after they have been arrested

Those who find their license suspended have options. It may be possible to apply for a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP). If granted, and RDP will allow you to drive a car to and from work, to the doctor’s office, and for day to day errands. You will likely not be eligible for an RDP if your blood alcohol content (BAC) was over .16 after a DUI arrest or if you committed vehicular manslaughter. If you are eligible to do so then you may be able to apply for reinstatement of your driver’s license. An attorney can assist you with the processes and hearings involved in obtaining either a Restricted Driving Permit or a license reinstatement.
