Reasons for license suspension you might not know about

Driving in Illinois can be a big responsibility. There are many rules and regulations to the road and some are more obvious than others. Your license can get suspended for some obvious violations, such as DUI convictions or having too many parking tickets, but there are other grounds for license suspension, too.

Not paying child support

Failure to pay child support can get your license suspended. If you have court-ordered child support and you are behind on your payments, that is grounds for license suspension. The "Deadbeats Don't Drive" Act in the state of Illinois started this policy.

Tollway and safety responsibility violations

Your license can also be suspended if you have five or more unpaid tollway violation fines.

If you are at fault in a car accident and don’t have insurance, this is another grounds for license suspension. The suspension can last up to two years in this case.

An already suspended license

If your license is already suspended and you continue to drive, your license can be suspended for longer. In some cases, your license can even be revoked.

Reinstating your license after suspension is possible but the process is can be a hassle. Be sure you’re aware of all of the reasons your license can be suspended in Illinois to avoid it altogether. You can also check the status of your license to see if it is suspended on the DMV website.
