IL defense lawyerOne of the many things that are up to states’ discretion is the issuance and control of driver’s licenses. The age at which you can apply for your learner’s permit and then your driver’s license is different in each state. In some states, you get receive your learner’s permit at the age of 14 while in other states you must be at least 16. In Illinois, you must be 15 years old to apply for a learner’s permit and 16 to apply for a junior license. You must also meet certain requirements for training and experience before you will be granted either the learner’s permit or the license. Young people tend to make poor decisions sometimes, which is why they are subject to a few laws that are more strict than adult laws. Violations of traffic laws can lead to unfavorable consequences.

Underage Driving Laws

Court Supervision and Moving Violations: Drivers under the age of 21 are limited to one sentence of court supervision for serious traffic offenses. Drivers under the age of 21 are only eligible for court supervision if they attend traffic safety school, while drivers under the age of 18 must appear in court with a parent in addition to attending traffic safety school.

Moving Violations and Loss of Driving Privileges: Drivers under the age of 21 who are convicted of two or more moving violations within a 24-month period will have their driver’s license suspended for at least 30 days. Remedial education courses may be part of the requirement to get their driver’s license reinstated.

Moreover, depending on the amount of the fine and/or penalties the court may impose, the price of the ticket can be expensive. Additionally, each violation adds points to a driving record which can cause a driver's car insurance rate to spike. If a driver receives too many moving violations, then he or she could end up having his or her driver’s license suspended or revoked. Therefore, it is important for drivers to retain the services of a traffic violations attorney who will fight any Glendale Heights traffic violations in court.
