How Long Does a Traffic Ticket Stay On Your Driving Record in IL?


How Long Does A Speeding Ticket Stay On Your Record In Illinois?

In the State of Illinois,  moving violations such as speeding, disobeying a traffic control light, disobeying a stop sign, and improper lane change stay on your driving record 4 to 5 years after the date of the conviction.

Unlike moving violations, traffic tickets and other offenses that result in suspension or revocation of an individual’s driver’s license will stay on his or her driving record for at least seven years from the date of license reinstatement. DUI or DUID offenses will result in a permanent mark on your Illinois driving record.
