Penalties are serious and may include one or more of the following:
- Up to one year in county jail
- Fines and cost of $2,500.00

Further, if you are convicted of DWLR, it can adversely affect your ability to apply for reinstatement of your license or a restricted driving permit from the Illinois Secretary of State.
