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...
