Do I have to pay my dui fines and tickets to get my license back
I got a dui and a no insurance ticket in 2011
Yes you must pay all your fines in reinstatement fees.
I am driving on a rdp in Illinois and have been for 6 months. How can I get it changed to work in Michigan, where my new job is?
1st conviction but 2nd arrest. Supposedly I can not get early reinstatement until 9 months. Is it possible to get early reinstatement prior to 9 months?
Yes, they have a special rule for early reinstatement before 9 months if there are "exigent circumstances" the most...
Advice for informal hearing after DUI
I'm eligible for an informal hearing now after my DUI. A few details about my case: blew a .102, cooperated fully with everything the night of the arrest and after sentencing, no other traffic violations other than a minor speeding ticket. Just probation and some fines. Anyways, I got an evaluation done and I'm minimal risk. I rarely drink more than 6 beers in one night, which lines up with what I'd said on the evaluation and what I blew that night. I also don't do any drugs, and haven't smoked cannabis in at least 5 years. My question is this: what can I expect? I don't have anything to lie about, but I keep hearing all these horror stories. Unfortunately, I'm a broke college student, or I'd just get a good lawyer here. Any general advice if I do indeed go solo?
You will learn that the Secretary of State doesn't reinstate convicted drunk drivers who continue to drink six beers in...

Will I not get hired because of a DUI?
I have already went through the interview process for a job in which I now have to wait to take the drug test and get the background check done (which will happen on the 20th). However in the time between signing the papers (9th) and getting the background check done I got arrested for a dui on the jan 13th which is before my background check (jan 20th). My court date isn't until the next month (February 13th) and my license has not yet been suspended (I got 46 days until). Will this arrest show up on this background check even though I have not yet been convicted?
Yes it will show up on a background check most likely. How can we answer a question about an unknown employer and...
How should I go about getting an Illinois license when I have a prior DUI in Indiana?
I grew up and got my license in Indiana. One month before moving to Chicago, I got a DUI (in Indiana). I was given permission to serve probation and attend substance abuse counseling in Illinois, but my license was suspended for 3 months. I sold my car and haven't driven since. Now its been a little over 2 years and I'd like to at least be able to drive if I wanted/needed to, but I'm concerned with the non-standard nature of my situation ---- My initial 3 month suspension has obviously passed, but my license in Indiana is still suspended, pending submission of an SR22 and payment of reinstatement fee. I'm now an Illinois resident, so having an Illinois license would be preferred. Indiana BMV told me if I did not wish to reinstate my Indiana license (to get an Illinois license instead), I would just have to provide proof that I no longer live in Indiana and the suspension on my Indiana license would be released. If that's true, would Illinois still require me to get an SR22? I understand that Illinois would still be able to see a previous DUI and suspension, but if I no longer have an "active" suspension (in Indiana), would I still face obstacles/repercussions in Illinois?
All excellent questions. First we start with the premise that EVERYTHING in IL is MORE DIFFICULT to achieve than...
