Out of State License Reinstatement Process

Our Drivers License Reinstatement Process for Out of State Residents

Over the past 23 years our firm has handled more and more people who live out of the State of Illinois. These people have not been able to renew their current State’s Drivers License or obtain a new Drivers License in their current State because of a “hold” in Illinois. The reason for this is that a national database has been created that most states check after a request to renew a Driver’s License or an application for a new Driver’s License has been received.

If the person is revoked or suspended in Illinois the national database will indicate this. That person’s renewal of their Drivers License or issuance of a new Drivers License will then be denied by their current State. The person then must contact Illinois and start the process of clearing the “hold” in Illinois. Until this Illinois Hold is cleared that person will be unable to renew or obtain a Drivers License in their current State.

The clearing of an Illinois Hold can be a very frustrating process. It is very hard to reach the right people at the Secretary of State’s office and the process to clear the Illinois Hold can be very confusing. Our office has helped hundreds of people from all around the country clear up their Illinois Hold.

    How Much Does it Cost to Reinstate Your Illinois Driver’s License

    What to do if Illinois Puts Your License on Hold

    The state of Illinois may, for a number of driving infractions, put a hold on your Illinois license. The only thing on your mind will be finding a way to release the IL hold on your license, so you can either renew or receive an out-of-state drivers license. The law firm of John M. Quinn & Associates, Ltd. is here and available to help you.

    When your license is put on hold, in many circumstances a hearing will be held to clear the IL hold.

    At the hearing, it is critical that the paperwork is submitted and completed in timely manner and the hearing is conducted in an efficient manner in order to secure the release of the IL license hold. If there are errors, or the file is incomplete, your petition with the IL Secretary of State will likely be denied. Furthermore, each time your petition is denied, it may become more difficult to get the release of the IL drivers license hold at a subsequent hearing. Working with a knowledgeable, experienced law firm can help you to avoid any delays or associated hassle with clearing your­­ license hold.

    If you have moved out of state, you will not want to be hindered by a lingering IL license hold. Just because there was an infraction in Illinois, does not mean that it will disappear as you cross state borders. There is a National Drivers Registery that allows states to share information about drivers with one another. If your IL license hold is not cleared, you will be unable to obtain a new drivers license when you need one or renew your current out-of-state drivers license.

    The law firm of John M. Quinn & Associates, Ltd. has 23 years of experience helping out-of-state clients receive a hearing and have the license hold removed. Our team will be in communication with you throughout the entire process.
