Driver's License Suspension & Other Consequences

Multiple speeding ticket convictions can result in the suspension of your Illinois driver's license (click here for more information on moving violation suspensions). If you are under 21 years of age, it only takes two moving violation convictions within 2 years to cause a license suspension. If you are 21 years of age or older, it takes three moving violation convictions within 1 year to cause a license suspension. Of course, losing your driver's license can have a significant impact on your personal and professional life.

Aside from a driver's license suspension, speeding tickets may also result in expensive court fines, traffic school, and insurance rate increases.

I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the success in getting my charges reduced. It has been a rather traumatic experience for me.
