What’s on Your Record

Your driving record will list any driving infractions, violations, tickets, etc, you’ve had in the past. This is where the state of Illinois keeps track of how many “points” you have on your driving record. It’s important to keep track of what’s on your record, especially if you have recently taken a driving class or some other measure to fix your record, to get those points removed or reduced. In some cases there may be errors on your record as well, so it’s up to you to make sure everything is correct. 

Otherwise, if you’ve had your license suspended or revoked, your Illinois driver’s license reinstatement will be far more complicated.
