Illinois Driver’s License Revocation Due to Felony Convictions

Published on November 19th, 2019

When you are arrested for a felony offense in Illinois, there will be consequences. If the felony involves a motor vehicle, it’s possible that you may lose your driver’s license due to the arrest. As your driver’s license reinstatement lawyer serving all of Illinois, we want you to know that the Secretary of State has the ability to suspend, cancel, or revoke your driving privileges if you are charged with a felony offense.

The Law

In Illinois, the law states that a conviction for any felony offense that involves a motor vehicle means that your license may be revoked for one year. After the one year is completed, you must appear before the Illinois Secretary of State for a reinstatement hearing in order to get your license back.

A Common Offense

One of the more common offenses that can result in a suspended license instead of a revoked one is the possession of controlled substances. If you are charged with this offense, your license may be suspended for a year.
