Understanding License Revocation And Suspension
For many, being able to drive is an essential part of life. You likely depend on this privilege to get to and from work. Others, such as your children, might rely on your ability to drive, as well. In general, driving privilege consequences include:
- Temporary suspension
- Revocation, possibly without the possibility of reinstatement
- Denied renewal or issuance of a license
A conviction of driving under the influence or multiple speeding violations are common reasons to lose driving privileges, but in Illinois, there are a variety of other offenses that could result in a license being revoked or suspended, including:
- Failing to satisfy traffic citation terms
- Having 10 or more unpaid parking violations
- Failure to pay child support
- Passing a stopped school bus
- Driving without valid insurance
