The local municipal court may have had good reason to take away your driver’s license. You may have committed serious offenses like drinking and driving. You also may have put the public’s safety at risk by driving erratically.
Once your driving privileges have been revoked, you have to ask the court to give them back, especially before the end of your sentence. You can make a petition to the court to reinstate your license in Chicago by hiring an attorney to represent you.
Showing Remorse and Changed Behavior
To convince the judge assigned to your case to give back your license, you need to show adequate remorse and proof that you changed your behavior. In particular, it can help you to show that you took proactive steps to become a better driver.
However, you may not know what steps to take to show both of these measures to the court. Your lawyer can advise you on how and when to take assertive driving classes, for example. He or she can also help you find a drug or alcohol rehab program to take.
Once you complete these programs, you can have your attorney show proof to the court. These steps can show the judge that you are sorry for your offense and can be a safe driver in the future.
