Report from DUI Arrest
You will need the report from the night of the arrest. Depending on where your DUI took place, this document may be called the notice of summary suspension, sworn report, law enforcement report, or police report. It should include: date of arrest, time of arrest, and the results of a breathalyzer test or a drug test.
This is only for drivers who hold a driver’s license from Illinois. It is needed for license reinstatement evaluations.

WHAT TO EXPECT
The drug & alcohol evaluation will take about two hours. It will include an interview and questionnaires focusing on past and current alcohol and drug use.
After the DUI alcohol and drug assessment is complete, you will be given a risk level recommendation of which DUI class program is best for your needs.
- High Risk
- Significant Risk
- Moderate Risk
- Minimal Risk
Note: In all cases, it is at the discretion of the Court to determine what type of recommendation, if any, will ultimately become a part of the sanction for the DUI offense. However, if the alcohol and drug evaluation is for the Office of the Secretary of State in relation to the return of full or limited driving privileges, you will be required to complete any recommendations contained in the drug and alcohol assessment.
You have the right to refuse the completed alcohol and drug evaluation, to withdraw from the process at any time, or to seek a second opinion by obtaining another evaluation. However, any information provided may be released to the Court or the Office of the Secretary of State, upon request. If the evaluation and assessment procedure is not completed, notice will be sent to the Court or the Office of the Secretary of State.
