What Are Restricted Licenses?

If you have exhibited good conduct during the time of your license suspension or probation but still do not have full driving privileges, you may be able to obtain a restricted driver's license.

What to expect with a restricted driver's license:

  • With a restricted license, you can operate a vehicle under closely monitored conditions.
  • Under a restricted driving permit (RDP), you can drive to and from work, to medical appointments, and run personal day-to-day errands.
  • In some cases, an RDP may not be available to individuals who have been convicted of DUI with a blood alcohol content of 0.16% or higher or to people who have been convicted of vehicular manslaughter.
  • To discover if you are eligible to receive an RDP, contact McCall Law Offices, P.C. now.

  2. Complete any necessary requirements: Depending on the reason for your suspension, you may need to complete certain requirements before you can reinstate your license. For example, if your license was suspended for a DUI, you may need to complete a drug and alcohol evaluation and complete a remedial education program.

If you are approved by the DMV to reinstate your license and driving privileges, you may be still required to pay reinstatement fees, such as the following:

  • DUI Fees
    • ‚ÄčFirst Suspension - $250
    • Each subsequent suspension - $500

How Long Does It Take To Reinstate A License?

It depends. When you are granted a restricted driving permit (RDP) by the Illinois Secretary of State, you'll be provided a list of requirements that you must complete within 90 days after your hearing order. When they are completed and submitted back to the Secretary of State, it typically takes 3 to 5 weeks to receive the RDP in the mail. If you are granted a full reinstatement, then what is required of you will not be as serious and you will have one year within your hearing order to complete the requirements.
