In Illinois, if you are arrested for driving under the influence or you refuse a sobriety test, you may face the temporary suspension of your driver's license. If you are convicted of DUI, your license may be revoked for up to 10 years, or even life. Once a driver's license is revoked there is no automatic reinstatement. To obtain reinstatement you must apply for an administrative hearing before the Illinois secretary of state in order to regain your driving privileges.
