Getting a driver's license back after it has been revoked in Illinois can be something of a Herculean task. The state doesn't just pull someone's license to drive haphazardly.

To get your license pulled, a driver has to commit a serious offense or repeatedly thumb their nose at driving regulations.

There are quite a few reasons that driving licenses can be suspended or revoked in Illinois. Losing your license no doubt places heavy burdens on you, as you may have trouble getting to work or taking your children to school. Luckily, you have options to regain driving privileges or reinstate your license altogether.
