If you live out of state and your driver’s license has been revoked in Illinois due to four or more DUIs, a new law may allow you some relief. As of January 1, 2016, you may apply to terminate that revocation ten years after your most recent Illinois revocation. If you move back to Illinois, however, your revocation will be reinstated.

If you would like to apply to restore your Illinois driver’s license, contact an experienced DUI attorney immediately. An attorney can help present your case to the Secretary of State in its most favorable light. The Secretary of State can be a tough customer, and it is essential to present as much evidence as possible to persuade them to grant your requests.

If you have questions about this or another related Illinois criminal or traffic matter, please contact Matt Keenan at 847-568-0160 or email
