How many tickets can I get before I lose my Illinois driver’s license?
It depends on how old you are. If you are 21 years old or older, three convictions for points-assigned violations in a 12-month period will cause you to lose your license. If you are 20 years old or younger, two convictions in a 24-month period will cause you to lose your license.
I italicized the word “convictions,” because, legally, you are not convicted of an offense if you successfully complete judicial supervision or traffic safety school for a ticket. Such a ticket will not count towards your ticket-accumulation limit (3 in 12 months or 2 in 24 months).
Also, there are many points-assigned violations, but common violations include speeding, disobeying a traffic control device, and improper lane usage.
