Illinois Drunk Driving Penalties

Implied Consent Law is applicable in the state of Illinois also, as per which you may have to face certain Illinois drunk driving penalties if you refuse to take chemical test when you are stopped by a police officer with a suspicion of drunk driving. The first time refusal to chemical test will result in driving license suspension for one year. However, you may be able to get some driving relief and obtain a restricted license after thirty-days of suspension. A second time refusal to chemical testing will result in three years of license suspension with no option to get driving relief.
