Asked about 1 year ago - Joliet, ILFlag
Afternoon, I was involved in a rear end accident 4/2011. I did not realize that my insurance had lapsed at that time. I renewed the policy asap, went to court, paid my fines etc and found out today, that my license is suspended?? I realize I have to have SR22 for 3 yrs, my court fines are all paid, Is there something I am not aware of??
Thank you for your responses..

insurance suspension is 3 months long, as long as a reinstatement fee is paid to the secretary of state. If the suspension period is over, pay the reinstatement because it is cheaper than hiring a lawyer to reopen the case and ask for supervision.
Counsel Harvatin stated it excellently; since you did not know what was going on you potentially did not receive a supervision, which as a result, would not have triggered a suspension of your driving privileges in Illinois. If timely, retain a traffic attorney and try to vacate a plea and reinstate your driver's license.
