I am looking for a response that will guide me on what to say to the letter of explanation that I received from the secretary of state, The evening before I blew positive I was out for a special occasion and we were drinking margaritas from 7pm until 11:30pm, Afterwards we went home and the next morning I went to go to work at 8:40am and failed the breathalyzer start up test a couple different times, I ended up getting a ride to work though a co worker, Around 340pm I went home for lunch and tried again and it failed again at a lower 0.0550 reading, What would be the best thing to say to the state? I am not trying to lie to them but need to have a reasonable explanation to why I failed, Please advise on what could happen as this is my first positive reading.

Should I get a lawyer to get my 20 year revoked Illinois driver's license back after two DUIs? I have had two DUIs, both involving an accident. The first one was in 1986, and I blew a 3. something. The second one was in 1992, and the other party was injured. I did not blow for that one. My Illinois driver's license was revoked. I tried to get it back some time ago but was denied. I have now been sober for the last nine years. I do not go to AA meetings very much, do not have a sponsor, but still manage to stay sober. How do I get my revoked license back after 20 years? Do you know the approximate costs involved? What steps should I take to get the license back?

About 10 years ago, I hired a lawyer, and went for my formal hearing, but the state denied me. (which is actually good because I was still drinking). Now I have been sober for 6 years, have gone off & on to AA meetings, which make me nervous because I'm a private person. I belong to an online AA group, but do not have a sponser. What are my chances of getting my license back?
Hire a lawyer. Search Avvo or go to to find the best in your area. Good luck!
had a car accident and got a dui in illinois
What is your question?
Almost a year, no prior issues or violations, and formal reinstatement hearing coming up soon. Drove car during brutal wind chills last week, had defrosters on full blast and missed the beep. As soon as horn started honking, I blew & car was ok. But warning said lockout in 5 days. Taking it in for service, but is this a violation that will result in an SOS letter? If so, why after just 1 missed rolling retest? The additional $75.00 does not overjoy me, but I am more concerned about answering a potential letter. Other than this incident, there are no others besides blowing insufficiently now and then. When that happens, the sample immediately after is successful every time. No fails and no other missed rolling retests - just this one. Expect a letter, how to respond?
When the letter arrives, promptly respond with your explanation. You might also wish to contact your attorney for any...
