When teens are first learning to drive, they are highly receptive to important messages about the dangers of unsafe driving and driving while intoxicated.

Procedures Involved in Illinois Licensing and Online Drivers Education
Let’s begin with congratulations. You are beginning the process by applying for a learner’s permit from the state of Illinois to be on your way to obtaining your license. In regard to teen drivers, the state of Illinois has put together a Graduated Driver’s License Program. You will want to keep a few things in mind if you want things to go a smooth as they can.
Let’s Start with the Illinois Learner’s or Instructional Permit
As of your 15th birthday you will be eligible to apply to get a learner’s permit in Illinois. These are sometimes referred to as Illinois supervised instructional permits. In order to apply you will need to meet these requirements:
Upon arriving at the Illinois Driver Service Center you must:
If you get through to this point and pass, then more congratulations are in order. You now own an Illinois supervised learner’s permit, valid for the next two years. You must carry it on your person any time you are driving and be accompanied by another driver who is licensed and age 21 or older. They must be riding in the passenger seat and not in the back. Once you’ve held the Illinois learner’s permit for a period of at least nine months, you will be eligible to then apply to get an Illinois driver’s license.
Your 1st Illinois Provisional or Driver’s License
Before applying to get your 1st provisional driver’s license in Illinois, you should know about and comply with the following:
You will then present all required information along with your Illinois learner’s license to the Illinois Driver Service Center. Next there will be a 3-part license examination, which includes the always dreaded road test. If you pass this road examination, then you will be the proud owner of an Illinois Driver’s License!
As soon as you turn age 17 and if your Illinois provisional license has not suffered any traffic violations, then you can go for a full Illinois Driver’s License. Congratulations again!
Restrictions & Penalties for Illinois Driver’s Licenses
You will have several restrictions to keep in mind concerning both the Illinois driver’s license and/or learner’s license, whichever you might hold.
With an Illinois learner’s permit it is mandatory for you to always drive accompanied by a licensed driver who is no less than 21 years of age, and they must be riding in the FRONT seat of the vehicle. All of these additional requirements will also govern the use of your permit:
These are the restrictions regarding your Provisional License:
Anyone caught in violation of these rules will have their license suspended. Any driver under the age of 18 needs to also be aware that insufficient school attendance can result in the suspension of your driver’s license in Illinois.
Financial Responsibility and Auto Insurance Laws for the State of Illinois
After receiving your driver’s license in Illinois, you are ready to hit the road. Really? Not so fast. Any vehicle that is registered in the state of Illinois MUST be covered at a minimum with Liability Insurance. Minimum coverage goes as follows:
Should you ever be convicted of driving in Illinois without at least the mandatory minimum liability insurance, a fine of $500 can be imposed on your 1st offense. Any offenses thereafter will result in a 4-month suspension of your vehicle registration. Should you be involved in any accidents and are unable to show proof of liability insurance, your learner’s permit of provisional license may be suspended.
Cell Phone, Text Messaging, & Drunk Driving Laws
As a new driver in the state of Illinois, it is vitally important that you learn the Illinois laws concerning cell phones, text messaging, and drunk driving.
Driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 will net you your first DUI in Illinois. When this happens, the following penalties will ensue:
Common sense dictates that any further convictions for DUI within the state of Illinois will result in even more jail time, more fines, more community service hours, and license suspension or even revocation.
Texting is currently prohibited while driving in the state of Illinois. The fines start at $75. Cell phones are also prohibited when driving through any Illinois school zones.
