Hello. I got 2 DUI's in Illinois about 5 years ago, and still have not gone to get my license back. I'm moving to Florida in a week. Can I get a new license in Florida or do I have to have it reinstated in Illinois first?You should NOT have to reinstated it in IL first. However, generally, you will have to have all restriction from doing so gone. Thus, all suspension/revocation periods will have to be expired, all fines paid, all classes enjoyed, etc. Thus, while still in IL, you may want to take a visit to your DMV and confirm what is left on your list of things 'to do' to make your privilege unrestricted.
