How Long Does A Speeding Ticket Stay On Your Record In Illinois?
In the State of Illinois, the Secretary of State will remove moving violations 4 to 5 years after the date of the conviction. Moving violations include the following criminal offenses:
- Disobeying a traffic control light
- Disobeying a stop sign
- Improper lane change
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.
