Q: I got a ticket for failing to yeild. I've only had my Liscense for a month, will i get my liscense taken? I am from IL.
A: No but if you are convicted your GDL restrictions will be extended by six months. In addition, you will need to stay ticket free for another two years to avoid a suspension. You should ask for court supervision. That will require the presence of a parent or guardian and taking traffic school. It is worth it in your case. Please be extra careful. Driving is a big responsibility.
Juan Ooink agrees with this answer
As usual, Mr. Harvatin is very thorough and correct in this matter. I would only add that if the ticket was the result of an accident, you should consider speaking to an attorney to see how to best go about getting the ticket dismissed. It probably won't require an attorney and you would have a good chance of dismissal in Cook County where it appears the ticket was received if you take the proper preparations.
I hope that helps and let us know if you have any questions!
