I have a friend that received a DUI in Indiana and has an Illinois DL in 2001. He had his license suspended for a year and paid the fines, and is now trying to get a restricted license or his regular license back. He has been told that he has to attend his Alcohol education classes before either will be issued. For the past 18months he has served in Iraq and had a government DL to drive semis.
Why cant he get a restricted license prior to the completion of classes. He needs this to go to and from work, to attend the classes and to have visitation rights with his children.
