Being arrested for driving with a revoked license or a suspended driver's license may be a final slap in the face after you have struggled to get where you need to go without a proper license. Your sanctions may have been based on lack of insurance, failure to pay child support, points accumulated on your license, or other problems. You may even have been arrested for DUI or another matter, and charged also with driving with a suspended or revoked license.
The danger is that your suspension could be increased or your license permanently revoked. You could be facing more serious consequences than just a ticket. If multiple charges are filed, it could amount to a felony.
Driving on a suspended license or revoked license due to a DUI in Illinois carry serious penalties with mandatory county jail or prison sentences. In Illinois, a first conviction for driving while license suspended, based upon a DUI charge in your past, carries a mandatory 10 days in jail or 240 hours community services. Second and third convictions are a Class 4 Felony with a mandatory 30 days in jail or 300 hours of community service. Your fourth conviction for driving while license suspended or revoked, based on past DUI, carries a mandatory sentence of 6 months in jail.
