I received a notice of suspension of my drivers license for having 10 or more parking tickets.

I checked the city of Chicago's website and noticed that I had 11 unpaid parking tickets. My license is going to be suspended on November 28. I was wondering if I pay to get under ten tickets will the Secretary of State rescind the suspension or if I will have to pay them in full?

My experience has been that you would need to pay the tickets in full but I would call a hearing officer with the Illinois Secretary of State to confirm if you are unable to pay them all in order to clear your license.

Pay the tickets and the reinstatement fee. Do not let your license get suspended. It only leads to more problems.


you have to satisfy the city to the extent they will show you in compliance Perhaps a payment plan.


Pay all your tickets. Do bot play games with the Secretary of State.


To my knowledge you must pay or arrange a payment plan for ALL OUTSTANDING tickets at this juncture.
