Or, you can go in person to any Illinois Secretary of State license office throughout the state of Illinois to buy a copy of your driving record. Here is a link to the page showing how to find an Illinois driver’s license office near you.

PLEASE NOTE:  All Illinois driver’s license facilities are closed through April 30, 2020 because of COVID-19.

Why Do You Need a Copy of Your Illinois Driving Record?

If you have an Illinois driver’s license and you get a speeding ticket in Missouri (or any other state), you may need to provide your attorney with a copy of your Illinois driving record. Your attorney will show it to the Prosecutor when they go to court to get your speeding ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point infraction.

You might also want a copy of your driving record so you can keep track of how many speeding convictions you have accumulated. If you are 21 years old or older and you get 3 moving violations in 1 year, your Illinois driver’s license may be suspended. If you are under age 21, your license may be suspended if you accumulate 2 or more moving violations within 2 years.
