Your license may be suspended or revoked for several reasons including:
- An individual has been convicted of three or more traffic offenses within 12 months
- an individual is involved in many motor vehicle collisions
- driving while license is suspended
- An individual is convicted of fleeing a police officer. 625 Ill. Comp. Stat. 6-601.
In Illinois driving after suspension or revocation can be charged as a petty offense, a Class A misdemeanor, or a felony.
Felony Charge: Any person convicted of a second violation of the law is guilty of a Class 2 Felony, if the revocation or suspension related to offense of reckless homicide. A person will also be charged with a felony after a third violation if the revocation was based on a statutory summary suspension. 625 ILCS 5/6-303
