What Does it Mean to Have a License Suspended or Revoked?

In Will County, a suspended driver’s license means a temporary removal of driving privileges. Upon completion of the suspension period, the license may be reinstated. The revocation of a driver’s license means the complete termination of driving privileges. In order to get a driver’s license back after a revocation, you will need to conduct a complex hearing with the Illinois Secretary of State.

Common Causes of a Suspended or Revoked License in Illinois

A driver’s license may be suspended or revoked for a number of reasons in Illinois. Convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs always will result in either a suspension or revocation of a license. Felony convictions involving vehicles can also cause a license to be suspended, as can using a fake driver’s license or identification card. Leaving the scene of an accident can lead to the suspension of a license as can receiving excessive traffic violations. Illinois will suspend a driver’s license if there are three tickets or 100 points on the record within a single year for an adult. For minors, it only takes two tickets within a year for a driver’s license to be suspended in Illinois.
