Factors behind a suspended driver's license

Illinois drivers may sometimes think that once they get their license, it cannot be taken away. However, a driver's license can be suspended for several reasons. While most of these reasons concern a driver's actions on the road, sometimes someone might have his or her license suspended as a consequence of nondriving actions.

FindLaw says that a person's license may most often be suspended because of offenses such as careless or reckless driving. Participating in a drag race can also result in the suspension of a driver's license. Additionally, people who harm pedestrians or other drivers may sometimes have their licenses suspended. The number of points a person has on his or her license is sometimes a factor, as people who receive several points in a short amount of time may be seen as reckless drivers.

Impaired driving can also result in a license suspension. According to, a license might be suspended if a driver younger than 21 has been drinking. People older than 21 may have their license suspended if they are drunk or impaired by an illegal substance. Sometimes people may temporarily lose their license if they do not pay tolls. This usually occurs only if someone avoids paying at least five tolls. Additionally, if a person has not paid a fine for at least 5 traffic violations or 10 parking violations, his or her license might be suspended until these fines are paid.

Sometimes a license may be suspended for a violation that has nothing to do with driving. Parents who do not pay their child support may find that their license has been suspended. Additionally, people may have their license suspended if they have not paid court fines. In this situation, people may need to pay these fines before they can renew their driver's license.
