A Formal Secretary of State Hearing is necessary if your Illinois driver’s license is revoked based on 2 or more charges of DUI.
At the hearing the Illinois Secretary of State will have an attorney representing the People of the State of Illinois. There will also be a hearing officer.
Because you are asking for the hearing it is your job to present you case. Once you are sworn in, the hearing officer will say, “You may start.” Without an attorney where do you go from there. It is the job of an attorney to present your case, to present both exhibits and testimony that you will be a same and responsible driver in the future.
Documents needed to have a formal hearing with the Illinois Secretary of State.
The specific documents you will be required to produce prior to starting your hearing will depend on your Drug and Alcohol Evaluation. Each specific classification has its own requirements.
