Suspended Illinois Licenses

September 8th, 2013 at 10:59 am

Usually, if someone has a relatively clean driving record and they get a ticket, they have the opportunity to have the points removed from their license. When those points cannot be removed, however, they can add up quickly because they are on your record for at least two years. Once you get too many points, you may lose your license for an extended period.

Lucy If you are unsure whether your license has been suspended, it is important to find out; driving with a suspended license can have stiff penalties. To view your driving record, which will inform you of the state of your license, you can contact your Secretary of State’s office.

The Secretary of State can give you a copy of your driving record online, in person or by mail. If you request one in person or by mail, you must provide your full name, driver’s license number, your date of birth and a $12 processing fee.

A question that many people have when their license is suspended is whether or not it is suspended in all states. The National Driver Register keeps records of suspended and revoked drivers’ licenses so that those drivers cannot get licenses in another state. The Driver’s License Compact also keeps tabs on drivers nationally. The Driver License Compact keeps track of all driving penalties while drivers are in states other than their home state.

Of course, the best way to avoid all of this is to keep your driving record clean whether you are in your home state or somewhere else, even if you have never had any infractions on your record thus far.

If you are ticketed or pulled over for something more than a traffic violation, like drinking and driving, contact a criminal attorney to help you out of those very dangerous points. Attorney Chris Cosley in Rolling Meadows, Ill. can help you keep your driving record clean today.
