Traffic Ticket Suspension

Traffic Ticket SuspensionIllinois Traffic Ticket Suspension

21 Years or Older

Moving violation convictions can result in the suspension or revocation of your Illinois driver’s license by the Secretary of State. Illinois drivers 21 years of age or older will face a driver’s license suspension for three (3) moving violation convictions within one year (any 12 month period).

Unlike many other states, the number of moving violation convictions (i.e. three) causes the suspension rather than the number of points associated with the violations. Points are only used by the Illinois Secretary of State to determine the length of license suspension or decision to revoke. Points vary depending on the nature of the violation and are set forth in the Illinois Administrative Code.

Under 21 Years Old

Illinois drivers under the age of 21 will face a license suspension or revocation for two or more moving violation convictions within two years (any 24 month period). Additionally, if a driver under the age of 21 has been previously suspended, an additional moving violation conviction after the end of the suspension but before the driver turns 21 will re-suspend or revoke his or her driver’s license. Drivers under the age of 21 are held to a higher degree of responsibility when it comes to traffic violations.

Clearing an Illinois License Suspension

If your Illinois driver’s license has been suspended or revoked for too many moving violations, The Davis Law Group, P.C. may be able to help. Often, drivers will pay traffic ticket fines by mail, online or fail to pay the fine altogether. Mailing in payment or paying a traffic ticket online often results in the entry of a conviction on your driving record. In addition, ignoring a traffic ticket may result in an ex-parte judgment, failure to appear, or bond forfeiture conviction entered against you. Convictions may be entered for other reasons, such as failure to complete traffic safety school.

Many times, it may be possible to vacate one or more of the convictions on your driving record. By reopening your case, we may be able to replace your moving violation conviction with an order of court supervision, allowing us to completely clear the suspension of your driver's license. If action is taken immediately upon receipt of your notice of suspension from the Secretary of State, it may be possible to remove the suspension before it ever goes into effect. Moreover, this process may avoid the need to have a hearing with the Secretary of State to regain your driving privileges.
