Out-of-State License Reinstatement

Out-of-State Driver License Suspended for an Illinois Charge?

Many people don’t know that a DUI or a traffic ticket you receive in Illinois could affect their driver’s license at home. If you are an out-of-state driver and got a traffic ticket in Illinois, you should know that your home state could be notified of any Illinois traffic violation and treat it just as if you committed it in your home state. Under the Interstate Driver License Compact, which affects 45 states, the state of Illinois will report any traffic violation to your home state. As a DUI and traffic defense attorney, my goal is to help you preserve your driving privileges. Whether your license has been suspended due to a DUI or too many points, I can help get your license reinstated.

The Driver’s License Reinstatement Process for Out-of-State Drivers

If your license has been revoked or suspended in your home state because of traffic violations or a DUI in Illinois, I can help you.

I am Alan E. Jones, a lawyer with more than 30 years of experience protecting the driver’s licenses of people just like you. I can petition the Illinois secretary of state to reinstate your license or to clear your driving record of Illinois stops, so you can seek reinstatement in your home jurisdiction. For most of the process, you will not have to return to Illinois.

I can explain the process to you in a free initial consultation. After receiving the necessary paperwork from you, I will help expedite the process by requesting a hearing with the secretary of state’s office. Paperwork you have may include:

  • A copy of your driving record
  • Any letters from the secretary of state or notices from courts
  • Accident reports
  • Probation documentation
  • Alcohol and drug program certifications

We can prepare for the hearing via conference calls, but I recommend that you be present at the hearing (call me to discuss the advantages of this). I will be your advocate, demonstrating how you have taken the right steps to regain your driving privileges. Contact me now.
