How To Reinstate a Revoked or Suspended License 

The process of reinstating a revoked or suspended license in Illinois varies ever so slightly depending on why it was revoked or suspended in the first place. However, regardless of the initial reasoning, you will always need to pay a fee to have your license reinstated once you have completed the suspension period. 

If you are unsure about how to proceed or you do not believe your license should have been suspended in the first place, consider reaching out to a lawyer who has experience with traffic law violations. A traffic law attorney can look into the details of your situation, gather the data, compile evidence, and present a case that depicts why your punishment is either unjust or too severe of a consequence for what happened.
