Judicial Driving Permits

A judicial driving permit is a type of permit that allows someone who has been convicted of a DUI to utilize a driver’s license for special reasons. Your driver’s license may be under suspension, but with a judicial driving permit, you are able to drive to and from places that qualify for necessary commuting by vehicle. In order to obtain a judicial driving permit, it is wise to seek the aid of an experienced Chicago criminal lawyer who can draft a motion for the judge to approve. There are a number of actions, which must be taken prior to submitting a petition to the judge for their approval.

Need a judicial driving permit?

In order to qualify for a judicial driving permit in Chicago, you must be able to provide the following documents:

  • A letter from your employer stating that it is a necessity for you to drive to and from work and no other form of transportation is available for you.
  • A form providing proof of completion of a substance abuse evaluation from the CSIA (Central States Institute of Addiction).

Once you have provided the judge with these documents, if approved, the paperwork will be forwarded to the Illinois Secretary of State Driver’s Services Department. You will receive notification as to when you are allowed to drive. For thirty-one days after license suspension, you will not be able to drive under a judicial driver’s permit. Following the thirty-one days, you may use your permit if approved. If this is not your first DUI conviction, you may not be eligible for a judicial drivers permit, but other options may still be available to you, contact the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege, for skilled legal assistance in all judicial driving permit matters.

He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was...

"I am so appreciative of the help and support that I received from Michael and his team members! They truly helped me figure out my case and I got outstanding results. If anyone can help you get great results, it’s Michael. I had an immigration issue as well and he worked with my immigration lawyer to help find the best solution. He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was. I definitely don’t want to go through any of this again but I’m glad that I had the support to get through this."
