I have completed all of the DUI class hours necessary. 75 hours primary, and 25 aftercare. I have completely changed my life around, and I have a good job. I want to suceed in my career, and in life, but this anchor is just weighing me down. I have paid dearly for my mistakes, and it still continues...my job is in jeoprady due to this. If I can, I will move to a state that will issue me a license,is there any states out there that will due this? I have heard that Texas may, is this true?
So the problem is, what? You are revoked for 10 years. You can apply for a hardship license after one year. The Secretary of State hears about 10,000 of these types of cases every year. Talk to a driver's license reinstatement lawyer in the Chicago area.
Moving is not likely to help. Between the Interstate Compact and the National Driver's Registry, you will have a hard time finding a state that will issue a license, and any that would even consider it are going to have a residency requirement, probably at least a year.
I have no personal information relating to this, but I have seen attorneys answer Colorado. Unfortunately, most States will not issue a license to someone who is revoked in any State.

It is difficult to get a license somewhere else after three convictions. You need to follow the first attorney's advice and speak to him or some other Illinois attorney who deals with license reinstatement. In Florida, you must serve two years of a ten year suspension after a third DUI within 10 years, before you could be considered for a hardship license. You can look up the various rules on reinstatement on the internet. Good luck. And don't drink and drive.
