What is Driving on a Revoked or Suspended License?
Driving a vehicle while your license is suspended or revoked is commonly referred to as a “6303” because this is the number for the violation in the Illinois Vehicle Code.
What if I never had a Driver’s License?
Even if you have never had a driver’s license, the state can still charge you if your record contains a revocation or suspension.
How do I have a record without a Driver’s License?
If a person never had a driver’s license and gets a ticket, the Illinois Secretary of State will create a driver’s record for you. All of your driving history will go on this record.
How serious is the charge?
It depends on whether the state suspended or revoked your license. Further, it depends on what caused you to lose your license. You can have a revoked or suspended license for many reasons. Most of the time, the state will revoke a license because a person has two or more prior charges of driving under the influence (DUI) cases. However, a suspended license is usually for less serious offenses: too many tickets, unpaid tickets, failure to appear in court when required, failure to have proper insurance, or tollway violations.
Can I be charged with a felony?
It is possible if the state revokes your license based upon a prior DUI, and if the state previously charged and convicted you of driving on a revoked license. Therefore, it is important to determine if the state’s attorney can upgrade your case to a felony so that we handle your case properly. More information about felony charges is available HERE.
