Understanding The Charges You Face
In Illinois, driving on a suspended or revoked license is a criminal offense and can lead to severe consequences. Driving on a suspended or revoked license is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine. Not only will you be charged with a criminal offense, but driving on a suspended or revoked license will negatively impact your ability to drive and can result in further suspension or revocation. In certain circumstances, driving on a suspended or revoked license can be charged as a felony offense.
If you are convicted of driving on a suspended license, the Secretary of State will extend your license suspension for the same length of time as your original suspension. If your original suspension has already expired, your driving privileges will be re-suspended for the same length of time as your original suspension.
If you are convicted of driving on a revoked license, you cannot apply for reinstatement of your driver’s license for at least one year from the date of the conviction.
