Types of License Suspensions or Revocations in Illinois

In Illinois, there are various reasons why your driver's license may be suspended or revoked. Understanding the specific circumstances surrounding your case is crucial, because different types of suspensions or revocations have different requirements for reinstatement. Your license may be suspended or revoked due to:

  • DUI: If you were arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), your license may be automatically suspended if you failed a blood alcohol test or refused to submit to chemical testing. If you are convicted of DUI, your license may be revoked. Reinstating your license after a DUI suspension or revocation typically involves completing an alcohol evaluation program, attending mandatory counseling sessions, paying fines, and potentially installing an ignition interlock device (IID) on your vehicle.
  • Traffic violations: Accumulating too many traffic violations within a certain time frame can result in a suspension of your driver's license. To reinstate it, you will need to serve out the duration of the suspension period and potentially complete additional requirements determined by the Secretary of State based on the severity of the offenses committed.
  • Safety responsibility suspension: You may face a driver's license suspension if you fail to provide proof of insurance after an accident that caused injury or property damage exceeding $500. To reinstate your license, you will need to provide proof of insurance, pay the required fees, and fulfill any other obligations imposed by the Secretary of State.
  • Revocation: Unlike a suspension, which has a specified duration, revocation is the indefinite withdrawal of your driving privileges. To have your license reinstated after a revocation, you will generally need to request a Secretary of State hearing where you can demonstrate rehabilitation through the completion of alcohol treatment programs or any other requirements that show that you will be able to operate a vehicle safely on Illinois roads.

The Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP)

If your driver's license has been suspended following a first-time DUI offense, you may qualify for a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP). With this, you can operate a vehicle equipped with an ignition interlock device during your suspension period. The ignition interlock device will require you to pass a breathalyzer test before starting your vehicle, and you will also be required to give a breath sample periodically while driving. You will not be subject to any restrictions on where or when you can drive while using an MDDP.

Restricted Driving Permits

If your driver's license has been revoked due to multiple DUI convictions or other more serious offenses, you might be eligible for a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP). An RDP will allow you to drive within specific circumstances, such as going to and from work, attending alcohol treatment programs or education courses, seeking medical treatment, or performing community service.

The requirements for obtaining an RDP may vary depending on the nature and severity of the offense that led to your revocation. Consulting with a knowledgeable attorney is crucial for understanding what steps will be necessary to qualify and comply with all legal obligations while holding an RDP.
