Driving on Suspended License

If you or a loved one has recently been charged with driving on a suspended or revoked license, you face serious criminal charges in addition to a longer period of suspension.

In order to protect yourself from crippling criminal penalties and get back on track for the restoration of your driving privileges, it is highly advised that you consult an experienced traffic offenses attorney as soon as possible after your incident. At Patel Law, PC our criminal defense legal team has a diverse knowledge of the various suspended license charges and we can effectively use our skills and dedication to resolve cases as favorably as possible.

Types Of Suspended/Revoked Licenses

In Illinois, there are several types of driver's license suspensions:

  • Suspension / revocation for a prior DUI
  • Failure to pay child support
  • Failure to pay a traffic ticket
  • Failure to have insurance
  • Committing three moving violations within 12 months

If you are charged with driving on a suspended or revoked license for a fourth or subsequent time and it is based on a prior DUI, you could be charged with a felony. Other situations that involve multiple suspensions, additional crimes or traffic violations and other aggravating circumstances also pose serious consequences. No matter the severity of your charge, you should never allow your case to resolve itself. By taking proactive measures and consulting qualified legal counsel, you can better protect yourself, your freedom and your future.
