Wheaton, IL suspended revoked drivers license attorneyThere is a multitude of reasons you can have your driving privileges taken away from you -- being convicted of a DUI, not paying your traffic tickets, not showing up in court and not paying child support are just a few ways you can have your license suspended or revoked. Whatever the reason, driving while your license is suspended or revoked is a bad idea. It can lead to even more trouble, like hefty fines and in some cases, jail time. Being caught driving while your license is suspended or revoked can also make it more difficult to have your license reinstated and may even increase the amount of time that your license is suspended or revoked.

First Offense

According to Illinois law, a person who is caught driving with a suspended or revoked license will be charged with a Class A misdemeanor for a first offense. You will face a mandatory sentence of 10 days in jail or 30 days of community service and fines of up to $2,500. If you were driving on a suspended license, your license will be suspended for double the original suspension period. If you were driving on a revoked license, your license will be revoked for an additional year.

Second Offense

If you are caught driving on a suspended or revoked license a second time, you will be charged with a Class 4 felony. This means you will face a minimum of 30 days in jail or 300 hours of community service. You will also face a suspension of your driving privileges for double the original suspension period or an additional year added to your revocation period. A second offense can also result in your vehicle being seized or forfeited. If your first suspension or revocation of your driver’s license was for charges such as reckless homicide, DUI, refusing a chemical test or leaving the scene of a crash, you will be charged with a Class 2 felony.
