Get Your Suspended Driver’s License Back

In Illinois, your driver’s license can be suspended if you have significant unpaid tollway and parking violations. If you cannot afford to pay these tickets, you may be unable to drive for months.

Bankruptcy Can Help You Get Your License Back

Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your debts will be consolidated and your monthly payments will be lowered for a period of three to five years. You can include tollway and parking violation fines in this repayment plan. In most cases, the state will then reinstate your driver’s license.

By negotiating with the state, we are often able to get your parking and tollway violation debt reduced to 10 percent of the original amount. As part of your Chapter 13 repayment plan, you will pay this off over three to five years.

Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy will not help you get your license reinstated because parking and tollway violations are not debts that can be discharged. Chapter 7 provides temporary relief from creditor actions, but it will not eliminate this type of debt.
