Does a Secretary of State license reinstatement hearing determine my guilt or innocence on a DUI charge? 


No. Whether or not you are guilty or innocent of a DUI charge is determined in the court system. If you have pled guilty, or been found guilty of a past DUI in court, the Secretary of State will lend great credibility to that decision. The focus of your Secretary of State hearing is to determine whether or not you have met your burden to be given driving privileges, not to relitigate the DUI charge that caused the revocation.
