DuPage County Attorneys for Driving While License Revoked Charges
Illinois Traffic Violations Lawyers for Clients with Suspended and Revoked Licenses
When your driver’s license has been completely revoked, you may face significant challenges with daily activities. Simply getting to work or school and caring for your family can be extremely difficult. That is why the State of Illinois reserves the revocation of driving privileges for those who have committed serious infractions and repeat offenders. However, if your license has been revoked and you continue to drive, the complications to your life will only be increased as you may face serious criminal penalties. At the Davi Law Group, we are committed to helping you protect your future, and we will do everything possible to provide the professional representation you deserve.
DUI Driver’s License Revocation in Illinois
Under the law in Illinois, an individual’s driver’s license can be revoked for a number of reasons. While it is possible to have your license revoked for multiple traffic offenses or safety violations, most full revocations are imposed as the result of activities related to driving under the influence (DUI). The Illinois Secretary of State’s Office is responsible for driver’s license revocations, and may revoke driving privileges for:
- A minimum of one year for a first DUI conviction;
- A minimum of five years for second DUI conviction in 20 years;
- A minimum of ten years for third DUI conviction; and
- Life for fourth or subsequent DUI conviction.
Driving privileges may also be administratively revoked without a hearing if a driver caused an accident resulting in serious injury or death.
While dealing with the complications presented by a license revocation can be difficult, the problem is likely to get much worse if you are caught driving with a revoked license. A first offense is prosecutable as a Class A misdemeanor, with potential penalties including up to a year in jail and $2,500 in fines. If the original revocation was related to DUI offense, the charge is a Class 4 felony with a mandatory minimum prison term of 10 days or 30 days of community service.
