Illinois Statuory Summary Suspension

In Illinois, if you have been arrested for DUI and have been asked to take a chemical test (breath, blood or urine), your license may be suspended. If you have taken a chemical test and either refused it or failed it, the police officer now has the ability to start the process of suspending your driving privileges. Once a police officer becomes armed with information that you failed a chemical test or refused one, he or she will fill out a "Law Enforcement Sworn Report" and give you copy of it called a  "Notice Of Statutory Summary Suspension". Your driving privileges will become suspended on the 46th day following the date you received notice of your statutory summary suspension. The Illinois Secretary of State will send you a "Confirmation of Statutory Summary Suspension" once they receive and process the "Law Enforcement Sworn Report". This "Confirmation of Statutory Summary Suspension" will tell you when your "Statutory Summary Suspension" starts, ends and whether you are deemed a "First Offender"

You are "First Offender" in Illinois if this is the first time you have been arrested for DUI. However, you may be a "First Offender" for purposes of the Statutory Summary Suspension if  you have been arrested for a DUI in the past as well. If you have a previous DUI arrest  and the statutory summary suspension and disposition on the DUI charge is more than five (5) years ago compared to your recent arrest, you are still a "First Offender"under the Illinois Statutory Summary Suspension Law. "First Offender" status has many benefits as follows:

dui break
First Offender    
(BAC > 0.08 or failed Urine test) 6 months Yes
dui break
First Offender    
(Refusal) 12 months Yes
dui break
Second Offender    
(BAC .0.08 or failed Urine test) 12 months No
dui break
Second Offender    
(Refusal) 3 Years No

Right now you are wasting valuable time that can be utilized in giving you the best chance to WIN! It is extremely important that you file a Petition to Rescind Statutory Summary Suspension immediately. The reasoning is that once this document is filed, the State must afford you a hearing within thirty (30) days or the first court date. If the State does not afford you a hearing within that time frame, your statutory summary suspension should be rescinded based upon a Due Process Violation. DO NOT DELAY!

Please do not throw away or misplace any of the documentation that the officer gave you. Often times, they alter documentation that they should not be altering and your document is the proof that they did.
