Joliet Multiple DUI Convictions Attorney

What Are the Consequences of Multiple DUI Offenses in Illinois?

Drunk driving arrests can affect your life in many ways. Even a single DUI charge can lead to the loss of your driver's license, fines of several thousand dollars, and the possibility that you may be required to serve time in jail. However, if you are convicted of DUI multiple times, you will be more likely to face very harsh penalties, including multi-year prison sentences and the revocation of your driver's license for life. After serving your sentence and completing the requirements put in place by the court, it may be possible to reinstate your driving privileges. However, the process of doing so can be difficult if you have multiple DUI convictions on your record.

If you have four or more DUI convictions on your Illinois driving record, with any one of those convictions occurring after January 1, 1999, different rules will apply to you when seeking to reinstate your driving privileges with the State of Illinois. To ensure that you comply with all requirements, you can work with an attorney who can advocate for your interests and help you demonstrate that you will be able to act safely when operating a vehicle on the roads in the state of Illinois. At the Law Offices of Jack L. Zaremba, P.C., we can advise you of your requirements, which will include:

Illinois Residents

  • You must have no more than one conviction for DUI involving drugs or a combination of substances.
  • It must have been at least five years since your last DUI conviction or five years since your release from a prison sentence based on a DUI conviction.
  • You must have three years of sobriety. You will need to meet specific requirements showing that you have received treatment for alcohol or drug abuse, as well as evidence that you are continuing to participate in programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous.

Please Note:

  • You are limited to only driving on a restricted driving permit (RDP) for the rest of your life (lifetime ban).
  • You are required to only operate a motor vehicle with a BAIID installed.

Out of State Residents

  • It must have been 10 years since the last DUI revocation on your Illinois driving record (DUIs that are not on your Illinois record do not apply).
  • You must demonstrate three years of continuous abstinence from using alcohol or drugs.

Please Note:

  • If you chose to re-establish Illinois residency after the hold on your license was removed, you will be required to attend a new license reinstatement hearing, and you will only be permitted to drive using a restricted driving permit and a BAIID for the rest of your life.
