Caught Driving Without a License in Illinois?
People rely on their ability to drive from one place to another. When that ability is taken away because of driver's license suspension or revocation due to DUI charges or multiple traffic convictions, it can make life very difficult. Overcoming that difficulty by driving while suspended or revoked can be very tempting. Unfortunately, if you give in to that temptation and are caught, the consequences can be serious — driving on a suspended or revoked license that is based off of a DUI is often a mandatory jailable offense. The attorneys at the law offices of John W. Callahan, Ltd. can help you fight them.

It only takes an officer a matter of seconds to run your plates and discover that you are driving while under a suspended or revoked license. In many cases, they may discover it when pulling you over for something else, such as speeding, failure to obey a stop light or even drunk driving.
