Legal Answers
55 Questions Answered

Q. Age 21. Court supervision until 07/05/17 for speeding ticket. Received 2 more leading up to today. Suspension possible?
A: Age 21 and older = a license suspension for 3 convictions within 12 months. If the Wyoming ticket was reported to Illinois AND if your court supervision is converted to a conviction based on the violation, a conviction of the new ticket will result in a license suspension. Overall, it sounds like an unlikely scenario. HOWEVER, speeding 26-34mph over the posted limit is a Class B misdemeanor punishable by a maximum 6 months in jail and a $1,500 fine plus court costs. In other words, the ticket you received today a criminal offense. It is even more serious based on the two prior tickets. Avoiding a criminal conviction, if possible, and minimizing the consequences is a top priority. You are strongly encouraged to retain an attorney. Best of luck.
Q. Suspended license for a 20 yr male
A: An attorney may be able to file a motion to vacate on the second ticket (failure to signal). If the conviction can be removed, the license suspension would be rescinded by the Secretary of State. You son's license would be fully reinstated. In which county did the second offense occur? Did he appear in court or simply pay the ticket? Has he ever received court supervision on a ticket?
Q. My 20 yr old son has a conviction on his license for 35 mph over. Issued 9/22/15. On 5/22/17 he was issued a ticket
A: An attorney may be able to file a motion to vacate on the second ticket. If the conviction can be removed, the license suspension would be rescinded by the Secretary of State. You son's license would be fully reinstated. In which county did the second offense occur? Did he appear in court or simply pay the ticket? Has he ever received court supervision on a ticket?
Q. My 16 year old received a ticket in Illinois for going 35 mph over. Is there anyway he won't lose/suspend his license?
A: Yes, it is certainly possible to avoid a license suspension. It is not automatic. However, speeding 35+ is a Class A misdemeanor and there are other potentiallly serious consequences. Contact a qualified attorney to discuss the specifics and your options.
Q. How do I go about having a ticket amended
A: Why amended? Do you have a CDL? There may be other options if you are just trying to keep it off of your public record.
Q. 23 over the speed limit, with a CDL, in a car, 1st ticket, can I get supervision or have the ticket amended
A: The ticket needs to be amended or dismissed to keep it off of your record. Court supervision/traffic school will not prevent the ticket from appearing on your record due to your CDL. You would be encouraged to speak to a local attorney directly who can advise on your options. Best of luck.
Q. CDL from TX 95mph on a 70 on vehicle. Could I take defense course and how will it affect my cdl?
A: The ticket needs to be amended or dismissed to keep it off of your record. Court supervision/traffic school will not help due to your CDL. You would be encouraged to speak to a local attorney directly who can advise on your options.
Q. Does two tickets within two years start from the date you get your license or from the date of the first ticket you get
A: If you are referring to a driver's license suspension for drivers under 21 years old, it is two moving violation convictions within 24 months, which based on the date of issuance of the tickets.
Q. How does being convicted of a DUI in a state other than Illinois affect my ability to drive in Illinois?
A: If the conviction is reported back to the Illinois Secretary of State, your driver's license will be revoked. You will need to apply for driving privileges through an administrative hearing before the Secretary of State. You may only be eligible for a restricted driving permit at first, prior to full reinstatement. This process is complex and legal representation is strongly encouraged. If your out-of-state attorney is able to avoid a conviction, or negotiate a reduction to reckless driving, you may be able to avoid a license revocation.
