Using Counsel for an Illinois Driver’s License Reinstatement Hearing
Once your license to drive has been revoked or suspended, you are faced with a complex legal process of getting it back early. The judge assigned to your case must be convinced about why you should get your driving privileges back before the end of the suspension or revocation period.
You may not be successful in convincing him or her on your own. However, you may improve your chances of getting your privileges back before the end of your sentence by hiring a lawyer to represent you during an Illinois drivers license reinstatement hearing.
Making a Solid Argument
When you have a lawyer on retainer for this hearing, you can make a solid case about why you should get your driving privileges returned to you. Your lawyer can present evidence showing that you are a changed driver and not prone to the same behaviors that led to you losing them in the first place.
He or she can tell the judge, for instance, that you took a defensive driving course or completed anger management classes. He or she can also show proof that you finished a drug or alcohol rehab program and will not use drugs or drink while driving again in the future.
