Arlington Heights, IL asked in DUI / DWI for Illinois

Q: In Illinois, what are the requirements for a reinstatement evaluation and hearing?

After my DUI and license suspension, I went through the evaluation and a full follow-up treatment program, all successful and I'm living sober. I'd now like to go back and apply for reinstatement. But what will be required of me for the necessary evaluation? Is it just a conversation? Or are there more classes? Drug tests? What can I expect?

A: A hearing requires a current AODA approved evaluation, proof of any required alcohol treatment, employment verification, medical need verification, and you must wait until you are eligible for reinstatement. If you have all the paperwork referenced above in order you file for either a RDP (hardship permit) or full reinstatement depending on whether you have previously obtained an RDP or not. The filing fee is $50.00.
