Illinois Informal Hearings
In Illinois, drivers who have lost their driving privileges due to a single DUI are required to do an Informal Hearing. Illinois informal hearings are held at certain Secretary of State Facilities across Illinois. At these DMV locations, hearings are held by an informal hearing officer. Unlike formal hearings, informal hearings are done by a walk-in basis, and are handled on a first-come, first-serve rotation.
While it is not required to have a lawyer present at an informal hearing, having an Illinois driver’s license reinstatement attorneys on your side can greatly increase your odds of successfully getting driving relief at an Illinois DMV hearing. Our Southern Illinois informal hearing attorneys have the experience and knowledge to help you navigate the driver’s license reinstatement process.

Requirements to Get Your Revoked Illinois Driver’s License Reinstated
- You must present evidence of efforts to reform your driving practices and demonstrate that you are capable of being a safe and responsible driver. If the loss of your driving privileges was due to a DUI or involved the use of alcohol or drugs, you also must meet the requirements set out in the Alcohol/Drug-Related Hearings section.
- You must not have a pending ticket before any court.
- You may not apply for reinstatement of your driving privileges until you have reached your projected eligibility date as stated in your Order of Revocation, and, if issued a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP) at a previous hearing, until you have operated successfully on that permit for at least 75 percent of the term of the permit.
- If you are not eligible for reinstatement or if you are suspended, you may apply for an RDP for any of the following purposes if you are eligible: employment, education, daycare, medical, community service, and support group attendance.
- To be eligible for an RDP, you must comply with requirements #1 and #2 above and show that without any driving privileges, an undue hardship exists in performing one of the purposes listed in #4 above. An undue hardship exists when there is no reasonable means of alternate transportation available to you such as bus, train, cab, friends, family or walking, and is not simply an inconvenience to not be able to drive.
