Suspension and ReinstatementThe license plates of first time offenders are suspended until a $100 reinstatement fee and current evidence of insurance are provided. Repeat offenders are required to serve a four-month suspension period, pay the $100 reinstatement fee and provide current evidence of insurance before being eligible for reinstatement.While the license plates are suspended no one may operate your vehicle; however, you may operate other vehicles that are insured.To process the reinstatement, you may visit one of the Secretary of State facilities: Bloomington, Carbondale, Champaign, Chicago Central, Chicago North, Chicago South, Chicago West, Decatur, Granite City, Joliet, Libertyville, Lombard, Moline/Silvis, Naperville, Quincy, Peoria, Rockford, Springfield, Tilton, Waukegan and Woodstock.If you are unable to visit one of the facilities, the reinstatement may be processed by mailing the fee and evidence of insurance to:Office of the Secretary of StateMandatory Insurance Division501 S. 2nd St., Rm. 429Springfield, Illinois###-##-####
