Will I Lose My Driver's License?

DuPage County Defense Lawyers for License Suspension Matters

A DUI arrest can do enough damage to your life without affecting your ability to drive too. But many drivers find that they are also facing license suspension or license revocation after a drunk driving arrest.

Losing your driver's license can do a lot of harm. It may hurt your career. More than that, it can prevent you from getting to work at all or providing for your family. If you are facing losing your driver's license after a DUI, talk to the attorneys at Michael T. Norris, Ltd. and John W. Callahan, Ltd., about your options.

Mandatory Revocation of Your Driver's License

In Illinois, the law says that the Secretary of State will immediately revoke your driver's license, permit or driving privileges for a year if you are convicted of a DUI. The trick to keeping your license? Don't get convicted. Work with experienced attorneys who will fight the charges for you.

At Michael T. Norris, Ltd. and John W. Callahan, Ltd., attorneys at our DuPage County law offices are dedicated to helping offenders avoid a conviction — and avoid a revoked license.

If you are facing your first DUI charges, it can be fairly easy to avoid a conviction by being assigned court supervision instead. Things get more difficult when you are facing your second offense. If you were assigned court supervision after your first DUI, the court may treat your second DUI like a first offense.

Each situation is different depending on different factors, some outcomes are likely:

  • If you receive two DUI convictions in any 20-year period, you could have your driver's license revoked for five years.
  • If you receive three convictions, you could be facing a ten-year revocation.
  • If you are convicted for a fourth time, your license could be revoked for life.
