Currently, Illinois law prohibits anyone with 4 or more DUI convictions from obtaining driving privileges where the last arrest resulting in a conviction occurred on or after January 1, 1999. In summary, if you have been convicted of driving under the influence 4 or more times, the Illinois Secretary of State will impose a lifetime revocation of your driver’s license (this includes any and all types of driving privileges), this is commonly call the “four strikes” rule.
This creates a problem not only for Illinois residents but also may prevent a person who had even one of the four convictions in Illinois and resides in another State from obtaining driving privileges in the State where the current reside.
Currently, legislative negotiations are under way to change the lifetime revocation law and allow persons who have made rehabilitations measures in their lives, to obtain driving privileges.
If you are one of the individuals affected by the “four strikes” rule, we encourage you to contact us. We can keep you updated on the progress of the negotiations.
