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. 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 (see below):
- 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, we’re 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.
