A: It may be possible to file a motion and attempt to remove one of the two convictions. If successful, the suspension would be rescinded and you would regain your full driving privileges. You should consider hiring an attorney to handle this process. You can apply for a restricted driving permit for work/school through an administrative hearing with the Secretary of State, but there are no guarantees - and the process would take much longer than clearing the suspension through a motion.

A: You need to hire an attorney. That attorney will file a Motion to Vacate on the most recent ticket. Hopefully that Motion will be granted and you will receive Court Supervision as opposed to the conviction you received. This will lift the suspension. The sooner you hire an attorney, the sooner you can get this all completed. Please note, there are no guarantees, but this is the easiest way to lift the suspension and get you back on the road.
