5 Ways To Lose Your Driving Privilege

Even if laws differ between U.S. States, there are some violations that will most likely result in a loss of your driver's license in every state. They may lead to either a suspension or a revocation. If your license is suspended or revoked in one state, you will not be issued a license in another state. There are basically three types of license punishments: suspensions, revocations, and cancellations. The meaning vary slightly between the states, but in general the following applies:
  • Suspension:: A temporary withdrawal of your driving privilege. When the suspension period has passed, everything goes back to normal and your license is restored. You have served your time.
  • Revocation:: A indefinite withdrawal or complete termination of your driving privilege. When the revocation period has passed, you must apply for a new license and often go through the whole testing phase again. There is no guarantee that you will get your license back. Your state may deny your application for several reasons.
  • Cancellation:: The reasons for your privilege no longer exist or you are disqualified. This is often the case when you gave wrong information in your application or shouldn't have been issued a license in the first place. Your license may also be canceled for health reasons.

Illinois Temporary Visitor Driver’s License

In 2013, a new bill created the new temporary visitor driver's license program in Illinois. It allows undocumented (non-visa status) individuals to apply for a temporary visitor driver's license, also known as a TVDL. Anyone who wishes to apply must have resided in the State of Illinois for more than 12 months. The temporary visitor driver's license gives the holder the privilege to drive, it is not valid for identification purposes. The license is marked with "Not valid for identification". This means that the license cannot be used to board an airplane, enter a federal building, register to vote or apply for a Firearm Owner Identification. To apply for an Illinois temporary visitor driver's license, you must make an advance appointment at one of the 36 designated Driver Services facilities. Just like any other driver's license, you must pass a vision test, the driver knowledge test, and a behind-the-wheel road test.

New Supervised Driving Log Requirement in Minnesota

To qualify for a provisional license, a teenager under the Graduated Driver’s Licensing (GDL) system must submit a supervised driving log. This log must verify that they have driven under the supervision of a licensed driver at least 21 years of age, for not less than 50 hours (at least 15 hours at night).
