What Leads To A Driver’s License Suspension In Illinois?

If you are charged with driving under the influence and/or you refuse to participate in chemical testing to determine your blood alcohol content level, the police officer will typically take your physical license on the spot and issue you a notice of suspension. Your driving privileges will automatically be suspended 46 days later unless you successfully challenge the suspension in court or obtain a restricted license.

What Are The Consequences Of Driving On A Suspended License?

If you drive on a suspended license, you can face additional criminal charges. A first violation for driving on a suspended license is a Class A misdemeanor that can result in a $2,500 fine and up to 364 days in the county jail.

How Can You Get A Restricted License?

You may be able to fight the suspension entirely. If not, first-time offenders may be able to obtain limited driving privileges by agreeing to the use of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID). To get your license reinstated, you will need to go through numerous steps, including alcohol and drug abuse screening and education, retaking your license exam and proving that you are not a threat to public safety at a state hearing.
