No Valid Driver’s License

The controlling Illinois Statute is: 625 ILCS 5/6‑101(a) which provides as follows:

“No person, except those expressly exempted by Section 6‑102, shall drive any motor vehicle upon a highway in this State unless such person has a valid license or permit, or a restricted driving permit, issued under the provisions of this Act.”


Driving with no valid Illinois driver’s license is a Class B Misdemeanor. The range of penalties is up to 6 months in jail, 24 months probation, conditional discharge or court supervision and/or fines up to $1,500.00.
