Re: Out-of-State Speeding Ticket
I don't know how it works, specifically, for IL, but I am familiar with the way DMV's in several states work. In all the ones I know of, when a person with an "out of state" license receives a ticket, a "dummy" DMV record is created for them. That record contains a cross-reference to their "actual" home-state driver's license number.
If you are found to have committed the infraction, a notice is sent to your home state's DMV, containing the charge and disposition. If you receive "court supervision" (or a deferral, as it's known here in WA), the case is noted as "pending" for the required time. If you receive ANOTHER ticket in IL (elsewhere doesn't matter because no other state will know of your "dummy" DMV record in IL), they will pull up your "dummy" record, note the "pending" case, notify the original court (who will change the status from "pending" to "guilty"), then send a notice to your home state regarding BOTH infractions.
If the year goes by without a ticket, your original case will be dismissed. The court will notify the DMV of the dismissal, which will be noted in your "dummy" record. Since it was dismissed, NO NOTICE will be sent to your home state, no points will be applied, and your insurance company will not be notified.
Again, I don't know, specifically, about IL, but I'd guess it will work pretty much the same way.
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
