An individual can have a revoked driver’s license for many reasons. The most common reasons include having two or more charges and/or dispositions of driving under the influence (DUI) on their record. Another common reason of a revoked license is being convicted of a felony where a motor vehicle is involved. For example, if a person is charged with having drugs in a car, the possession of the illegal drugs is the felony and because they were being transported in a vehicle, the vehicle is considered used to help commit the felony.
A person found possessing two or more driver’s licenses is another cause for a revoked license. The most typical case is when a person obtains a driver’s license using a false or another person’s social security number. At a later date, when the individual goes to the Secretary of State to legally obtain a driver’s license with their real name and social security number, the Secretary of State is able to determine that this person already has a license. The Illinois Secretary of State uses computer software that looks at the picture on the driver’s license and identifies individuals who look similar. If the Illinois Secretary of State matches what appears to be the same individual using or having two driver’s licenses, they revoked the license and the Illinois Secretary of State Police become involved.
