Who should complete this course?
Drivers ages 21 and older who have had their license suspended for three months or less for being convicted of three moving violations in 12 months are notified by the Secretary of State of their eligibility for the Probationary License Program.
Upon successfully completing the program requirements, drivers will receive a probationary license from the Secretary of State for use during the suspension period. Any additional reported convictions may affect your eligibility to obtain or retain your probationary license. Also, CDL drivers will be issued a Probationary License for their personal vehicle only. CDL drivers are prohibited from operating any and all commercial
vehicles while under suspension.
