Illinois Interlock Process

Get your license back in Illinois after a DUI

If this is your 2nd or higher offense you will be applying for a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP). Multiple DUI arrests will require either a formal or informal hearing. Informal hearings will be at regional Drivers Services facilities. Formal hearings are requested in writing with a $50 filing fee.
