Illinois Driver’s License Reinstatement Informal Hearings

The Kurash Law Group has vast experiencing in representing clients at informal hearing before the Illinois Secretary of State. The Secretary of State’s office has two different types of driver’s license hearings for people who have had their license suspended or revoked and those are informal hearings and formal hearings. An informal hearing can take place at one of many different Secretary of State facilities. A formal hearing will only take place at one of four facilities throughout Illinois, which are in Chicago, Springfield, Mt. Vernon and Joliet.

An informal hearing will involve the driver with the suspended or revoked license taking part in an interview with the informal hearing officer. It is a very good idea to obtain legal representation for an informal hearing. During the interview, the offense(s) will be reviewed, and the driver’s driving record will be stated, along with any occurrences of driving while on a suspended or revoked license, any criminal history and if the driver is suffering any type of hardship from having their license suspended or revoked.

If the person has a history of alcohol or drug-related offenses, their alcohol/drug abuse history will also be reviewed, including if the person has received any treatment. The person will also need to submit an alcohol/drug evaluation and treatment documentation if they have had previous offenses. They may also need documentation from family and friends that states what their current usage is or verify that they are abstaining from alcohol/drugs.

After completing the interview and submitting the necessary documentation, the informal hearing officer will fill out an interview form and will also obtain the hearing officer’s recommendation and will make a determination if they believe driving privileges should be restored. The Secretary of State will review this and make a final decision, to which the driver will be notified of by mail. If driving privileges are denied, the driver may request another hearing 30 days after the first hearing or they may request to have a formal hearing.
