    Each time you are convicted of a moving violation, points will be added to your driving record according to Illinois' point system. The number of points varies according to the offense, and Illinois is relatively unique in assigning points for going too slow.

    You face suspension or revocation of your driver's license if you amass too many traffic violations. The length of time you lose your license will depend on how many points you've accumulated.

    Points

    Illinois has created a very comprehensive rundown of all possible offenses and points given in the Illinois Offense Table.

    Penalties

    Three convictions for traffic violations within a 12-month period can result in the revocation or suspension of your driving privilege. How long this revocation or suspension lasts depends on the number of points you have accumulated against your license.

    First-Time Suspension

    If you have not had your license suspended or revoked for the past seven years, these penalties apply:

    • 0 to 14 points―no action
    • 15 to 44 points―2-month suspension
    • 45 to 74 points―3-month suspension
    • 75 to 89 points―6-month suspension
    • 90 to 99 points―9-month suspension
    • 100 to 109 points―12-month suspension
    • 110 or more points―12-month revocation

    Repeat Offenders

    If your license has been suspended or revoked in the past seven years, the penalties this time around are harsher:

    • 0 to 14 points―no action
    • 15 to 44 points―4-month suspension
    • 45 to 74 points―6-month suspension
    • 75 to 109 points―12-month suspension
    • 110 or more points―12-month revocation
