Fraudulent Drivers’ Licenses or ID Cancellations

     The Illinois Secretary of State may cancel and subsequently suspend or revoke a driver’s license, permit or ID card for fraud under several different sections of the Illinois Vehicle Code depending on the circumstances of the offense.

     The penalties for these offenses generally are as follows:

         1st Offense: 12-month Suspension

         2nd or Subsequent Offense: Revocation

      If you have been suspected of using a false identity or social security number, we will represent you before the Secretary of State Police to prove your true identity.  What follows is then a period of suspension. However, we will then represent you in an informal hearing before the Secretary of State so you may obtain a restricted driving permit (i.e. work permit). Ultimately, with our help, you will then be able to apply for a Temporary Visitor Driver’s License (TVDL) and have full driving privileges.
