State of Illinois Motor Vehicle Review Board
By statute, the Motor Vehicle Review Board conducts hearings to resolve certain violations of the Motor Vehicle Franchise Act that arise between automobile dealers and the manufacturers with whom they have contracts to sell vehicles. Through the Secretary of State's Department Of Administrative Hearings, notices of protest from the dealers are received, scheduled for hearings and heard by hearing officers who make recommendations to the Motor Vehicle Review Board. The Board enters final orders granting or denying the protests filed. Authority for the Board is found in the Motor Vehicle Franchise Act, 815 ILCS 710/1, et. seq.
