In Illinois, a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP) is a special type of driving permit that allows individuals whose driver’s license has been suspended to operate a motor vehicle legally. This permit may be available to qualified individuals in Illinois who have had their license suspended due to a first-offense DUI.
Today, we will discuss who can get an MDDP and the different benefits of this permit. If you want to learn more about your legal rights and options following a driver’s license suspension, contact a driver’s license restatement lawyer.
An MDDP Can Get You Back on the Road Legally
Individuals who are at least 18 years old and have had their driver’s license suspended due to a first-offense DUI conviction are typically eligible for an MDDP in Illinois. You will not qualify for an MDDP if your driver’s license was already suspended, revoked, or was otherwise invalid at the time of the DUI arrest. Individuals accused of causing death or bodily harm while driving under the influence and those previously convicted of reckless homicide or aggravated DUI do not qualify for an MDDP.
