Why might your driver’s license be revoked?

It can be inconvenient to have your driver’s license taken away, but it is even more of a problem if you are caught driving without a license and must face the additional consequences. You and other Illinois residents may wonder how easy it is to lose your driver’s license. Contrary to popular belief, drunk driving is not the only way you can have your driver’s license suspended or revoked.

FindLaw points out numerous common ways to lose your driver’s license, which can include the following:

  • Revocation after driving with a suspended license
  • Having multiple DUI convictions on your record
  • Leaving the scene of an accident where there were injuries
  • Reckless driving or drag racing
  • Having too many traffic ticket points on your record or failing to answer a traffic summons
  • Not maintaining insurance coverage as required by law

Additionally, you can lose your license if you have a child support order and fail to keep current on your child support payments. Usually, you risk losing your driver’s license if the above violations are repeat offenses. However, you could have your license suspended immediately for refusing to submit to a blood alcohol test.

The steps to regain your driver’s license can be complicated and may vary, depending on the reason your license was suspended or revoked. You may even have cause to fight the suspension of your license if you believe you were not at fault for the alleged offense. Therefore, this information should not replace the advice of a lawyer.
