License Reinstatement

Joliet License Reinstatement Attorney

Will County Driver's License Reinstatement Lawyer

The loss of your driving privileges can range from a slight inconvenience to a severe hardship. If you've lost your license in Illinois, you may be eligible for a restricted driving permit (RDP) prior to the date you are eligible for driver's license reinstatement. An experienced Joliet driver's license reinstatement lawyer can discuss these options with you and can help you get your driving privileges back.

Getting Your Driver's License Back in Will County

In Illinois, the steps to obtain a restricted driving permit or driver's license reinstatement are much alike. To get your driver's license back, you'll need to do the following:

  • Meet with a Driver Services Hearing Officer.
  • If your record contains an alcohol/drug-related offense, complete any related requirements.
  • Appear at a formal or informal hearing.

If your RDP or license reinstatement is granted, you will be required to take additional steps, including providing proof of financial responsibility and paying a reinstatement fee.

Should your request for a restricted driving permit be denied, you will be able to appeal the decision and apply for another hearing after a certain number of days.

Obtaining a Restricted Driving Permit in Will County, Illinois

However, if you're applying for an RDP prior to the date your license is eligible to be reinstated, you'll need to prove that being without driving privileges is causing you "undue hardship" – for example, by affecting your ability to stay employed, obtain medical treatment or go to school, or care for children. An experienced Joliet driver's license reinstatement lawyer knows how to best prove this undue hardship, saving you the hassle of attempting to do this yourself, and potentially, the stress of being forced to appeal a restricted driving privileges denial.
