I have a speeding ticket and I wanted to know if I can get my license at the DMV.
A single speeding ticket on your record will not suspend your license as long as it's resolved. Or are you asking about having a new license issued after it is taken by the police as bond? You are allowed to drive on the ticket while the case is pending, you can also obtain a State ID so you have a valid form of identification. Please clarify.See question
I haven't received a speeding ticket in over 10+ years now and the last ticket I had gotten was for an incomplete stop at a stop sighn like 4 years ago. I have only received only one speeding ticket in my life. Is Supervision an option?
A qualified attorney will be able to explore all options, which includes the possibility of negotiating a reduction of the charge to a petty traffic offense with court supervision. Class B misdemeanors are technically punishable by a maximum $1,500 fine plus court costs and 6 months in jail, although these penalties are extremely unlikely based on your record. Avoiding a criminal conviction with minimal consequences should be a likely scenario if the case is handled properly. Contact an attorney directly to discuss the specifics. Best of luck.See question
Got a DUI in 1995, did classes and victim impact panel, but did not appear at the end of supervision date and my supervision was revoked and a conviction was entered in 1996. I know it is very old, but there is an outstanding warrant so maybe the ...
Why was your supervision revoked? It's unlikely it was revoked only because you didn't show up on the termination date. It MAY be possible to reinstate your supervision depending on a number of factors, but it would certainly require your personal appearance. We've had success with similar situations in Cook County, but there are no guarantees. If reinstating your supervision this late in the game isn't possible, you would need to apply for reinstatement through the Illinois Secretary of State. It is possible to go through this process without returning to Illinois, but it is strongly recommended that you find appropriate legal representation. Speak to a local attorney, who will be able to review your driving record, your file at Rolling Meadows, and determine the best strategy.See question
Long story short, I was on my way to get in time for college finals. Went 91 on 70. Now obviously this is very unacceptable and idiotic, I wish I could take it back. I knew not to speed but I was freaking out about finals. Told the officer my situ...
Do not accept a conviction and, in turn, a license suspension. You have never had the benefit of court supervision, I don't see why an attorney couldn't convince the prosecutor that you should be afforded this opportunity despite the prior tickets. I would suggest to the prosecutor that if you violated the conditions of the supervision, and a conviction was entered, a suspension could still be entered anyway. Of course, your attorney could also determine if there is a way to challenge the ticket itself. Best of luck.See question
I was driving in extreme left lane on I-88 and was speeding 26 mph over. What will happen in court and what preparations is required ? I never had supervision before but had a minor accident a week ago.
Speeding 26-34 mph over the limit is a Class B Misdemeanor. Technically, this type of criminal offense is punishable by a maximum $1,500 fine and up to 6 months in jail. Although a penalty this severe is unlikely, an attorney can help ensure that you receive the best possible result (i.e. a clean record). Best of luck.See question
I AM CDL DRIVER AND THAT TICKET EFFECT MY DRIVER LICENSE ,I WOULD LIKE TO ASK JUDGE TO VACATE/AMEND ,A TICKET ,DO I NEED A ATTORNEY. FOR THIS MATTER
As a CDL holder, it would certainly be in your best interest to hire an attorney to handle this matter. The prosecutor would need to agree to amend the offense to a non-moving violation to prevent it from appearing on your public driving record if it is not dismissed. Court supervision will not accomplish this goal.See question

If you are issued a ticket during the period of court supervision, a violation can be filed and a conviction can be entered. This isn't very common in Chicago on petty traffic cases. You will not be arrested solely based on the fact that you are on supervision. Contact your attorney to ensure the situation is handled properly. While there are no guarantees, technically, you are eligible to receive supervision twice within 12 months.See question

A violation of your first supervision could be filed and a conviction could be entered. It's difficult to know whether this will happen. Depends on a number of factors. Your best bet is to avoid a conviction on the new offense and protect your license. You are eligible for (but not entitled to) two orders of court supervision within a 12 month period. In the alternative, based on your age, two convictions within 24 months would suspend your driver's license. Contact an attorney regarding your new ticket. Best of luck.See question
