Rockford, IL asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: What happens if I don’t take the court supervision class?

I got two tickets and got supervision, then got another on supervision and got a letter of license suspension, I’m about done with my suspension and have my suspension driver class this Saturday, but I just got a subpoena for violating my court supervision for not taking the class for the supervision, but I thought when you convicted and license is suspended you get your supervision dropped so I didn’t think I had to take the class? What’s going to happen to me?

A: Hello Asker,

Unfortunately, it is difficult to determine what you are asking but I will try. When you receive supervision, you are still required to do all the terms of that in order to prevent your supervision from being revoked. If you were to take driving class, you must do so. If you have a separate requirement to take driving classes, this does not lift your previous requirement to take it as part of your supervision. From the sounds of it, it sounds as though you received two moving violation convictions (previous supervisions that were revoked and made into convictions) and subsequently were suspended for receiving two moving violation convictions in 24 months under the age of 21. This triggered an invalidation of your driving privileges requiring the $90 National Safety Council class to be taken. The supervision on one or both cases was violated by a third citation which may or may not have triggered a new 6 month suspension for a moving violation conviction after a previous suspension for the above reason picked up prior to your 21st birthday. This is my best guess based upon your description. For a more specific accounting, I would recommend you speak to a traffic attorney as they can help suss out exactly what happened by asking appropriate follow up questions.
