How to Clear Your Driving Record in Illinois?

If you have an Illinois driver’s license, it’s important to speak to an attorney if you get a traffic ticket in Wisconsin. I have experience working with Illinois drivers who have gotten traffic citations in Wisconsin

Can a Ticket Be Amended?

There are ways to get your ticket amended so that it will not transfer to your Illinois driving record. This is important because Illinois does not have a points system; instead, they count the number of moving violations per year.

For Example:

  • On a regular Illinois driver’s license: Three tickets in a 12-month period results in a suspension.
  • If you are under 21 and get two tickets in a 24-month period it results in a suspension.

In many instances, our Milwaukee lawyer is able to get an Illinois driver’s ticket amended to a charge that will not count as a moving violation. This will prevent the citation from appearing on an Illinois driving record. 

Deferred Prosecution Is Not Possible in Wisconsin

In Illinois, you have the option of getting a court order of supervision to avoid a speeding ticket conviction. This is not possible if you get a ticket in Wisconsin. This is why it is best to get your ticket amended to a charge that will not count as a moving violation in Illinois.
