Re: To Get Driver's Lic. but I Have a DUI from Ten Years Ago in a Different State
I recommend that you start with the Illinois DMV. You must be clear in IL prior to applying for a license in any other state. Each DMV is required to check the National Driver Register / Problem Driver Pointer System (PDPS) prior to issuing a driver's license. If you're suspended in IL due to the DUI conviction, the other state cannot issue you a license and they'll simply refer you back to IL for clearance.
Here's the contact information for IL:
ILLINOIS 217-782-6212 or 217-782-2720

Driver Services Department
