Driving on a Suspended or Revoked License in Illinois
It may not seem like a big deal to continue to drive while your license is suspended or revoked, but it can lead to serious consequences. If you are caught driving on a suspended or revoked license, you will be charged initially with a Class A misdemeanor. If you are charged with a Class A misdemeanor, you can serve up to 364 days in jail, a $2,500 fine, or a combination of both. A repeat offense in some instances may result in you being charged with a felony. If you are charged and convicted of a felony, you could serve at least one year in prison and pay a fine of up to $25,000. Additionally, a misdemeanor, or felony conviction on your record will likely have a negative impact on your life. You would have to disclose it on employment applications, housing or assistance applications, and to professional licensing agencies. It may also prevent you from obtaining or maintaining employment, acceptance into the military, or into the school of your choice.
