Chicago, IL asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: Do you need a guardian present with a minor when showing the completion of court supervision.

I did not receive any tickets within the 3 month time period, and I also have the letter from the school stating I completed the driving school. Do I need to have a guardian present, or can I go alone and show them the sheet and be done with the case?

A: You only need a parent or guardian present in order to receive Court Supervision. They do not have to be in court on your compliance date. Just make sure to bring the proof that you completed Traffic Safety School and paid all of your fines.

A: If you are a minor you should always have a parent or guardian accompany you to Court.

Either way just make certain you do show up to Court to show proof of completion of the driving school.

A: You should be fine going to court on the termination date without your parent or guardian to simply show the proof of completion of your traffic school.
