An Illinois driver’s license can be suspended for any one of about 40 reasons. The suspension might be as a result of a DUI, too many moving violations, parking tickets or even child support arrearages. Even more serious than a suspension is a revocation. A revocation might result from anything like excessive moving violations to one or more DUI convictions. It’s far more difficult to legally get on the road again on with revocation as opposed to a suspension.
