License are suspended for unpaid parking tickets a relative had a car in my name. Can I get a restricted license while i pay?

Asked over 1 year ago - Melrose Park, IL

I can't afford the entire 6000 balance nor the 50% down payment for the payment plan. I want to pay 1 or 2 tickets a week until paid off. I really need help, i was unemployed for 2yrs and I currently have a 11 month old son, I need to drive to work and daycare without going to jail.
