Chicago, IL asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: Court supervision

10 months ago I got 3 months court supervision for 2 moving violations which was satisfied.

Last week I received another moving violation.

Will the supervision tickets go toward the DL mandatory suspension?

A: If you got supervision, they should not show up on your record as convictions.

That is the whole purpose of supervision.

A: Hello Asker,

If you received supervision on two violations that were issued on the same day, you would still be eligible for court supervision though it is recommended that you attend court to have a good chance of supervision or have an attorney appear in court to help you get supervision. Fortunately, you have nothing to fear from a suspension for moving violations. For the purposes of that rule, moving violations do not count if you received supervision and it is not terminated unsatisfactorily. With that said, there is one rule that can trip you up.

If you received this new ticket prior to your 21st birthday...

AND

You have had a prior moving violation based suspension

AND

That moving violation suspension wasn't rescinded (this usually requires filing a motion and re-litigating a case)

Then you can be suspended for a minimum of 6 months. Outside of this narrow rule, most situations don't have a suspension risk. Take this with a grain of salt as there are other more specific rules such as receiving two speeding tickets for 26 or more over the limit within 2 years that can suspend you. Additionally, some violations that sound like moving violations like driving during a suspension can trigger a suspension on their own. Without knowing the specific tickets you had, this is the most accurate answer I can give.

Let us know if you have any additional questions!

Sincerely,

Jason A. Wilkins
