There is nothing more disappointing after completing all of your requirements only to go to a hearing and then being informed that you have been denied a driver's license or driving permit.  Many times the order of denial is due to inconsistencies in your testimony and documentation prepared by the clinician.  It is critically important that before you go to a hearing that you read all of the clinical documents.  You should understand what the documents indicate and be prepared to testify at the hearing information consistent with these documents.  Additionally, the hearing is a civil matter and not a court proceeding.  It is up to you to provide all needed documentation and testify on your behalf at the hearing to make a case for the Secretary of State to believe that you are a "low" risk to the public's safety.   If you have been denied driving relief Care Clinics can still help you even if we did not complete the initial evaluation or treatment services.  We do not provide legal advice or services however we do assist your attorney in preparing your clinical documentation for presentation at court or a hearing.  If needed we can provide referrals to experienced attorneys that excel in preparing your for a hearing with the Secretary of State.

Care Clinics, Inc. has been assisting those individuals who have lost their driving privileges due to DUI charges which occurred in the State of Illinois as well as out of state.  We are highly experienced with handling misdemeanor, felony, and fatal DUI revocations.  If you have been charged with any of these offenses you will need a Secretary of State Uniform Report also known as a DUI evaluation.  Call Care Clinics at 630-896-4650 to set up an appointment and a facility staff member will inform you of all needed documentation.  Typically the evaluation appointment will take about 1-1 1/2 hours which will include written documentation and an interview with a clinician.  This document is prepared by a clinician and needs to be highly detailed and accurately report your past substance use and clinical criteria.   We can prepare this document within 1 to 2 business days typically.  The fee for this evaluation is $125.00 dollars.  If you need a same day service we may be able to complete the document for you depending on staff availability and an additional fee of $25.00 dollars.

You will need to go to a local Secretary of State driver's license facility and obtain a "court purposes" abstract.  This is a very specific driver's record provided by the Secretary of State that will state "court purposes" at the top left side of the abstract.  It is a privileged document so you must appear in person with personal identification and the usual cost is $12.00 dollars.    


Care Clinics also handles other loss of driving privileges to include other alcohol/drug related arrests such as Zero Tolerance Suspensions, Underage Consumption/Possession charges, BAIID violations, and committing felonies in motor vehicles.  If you have been charged with any of these offenses you will need an Secretary of State Investigative Alcohol/Drug Evaluation.  Typically the evaluation appointment will take about 1-1 1/2 hours which will include written documentation and an interview with a clinician.  This document is prepared by a clinician and needs to be highly detailed and accurately report your past substance use and clinical criteria.  We can prepare this document within 1 to 2 business days typically.  The fee for this evaluation is $125.00 dollars.  If you need a same day service we may be able to complete the document for you depending on staff availability and an additional fee of $25.00 dollars.
