How do I get my dl back quicker?
If you posted your Driver's License as bond, you can call the Circuit Clerk in the County or City where you were cited, and often they will allow you to exchange it for a different form of bond, either cash or a bond card. Doing so this way still allows you to plead guilty or not guilty and go to court if you wish.
If you want to plead guilty and just pay the citation, you can do so prior to the court date. In this case, you can either mail the proper copy in to the State's Attorney's office, or go in person and pay the appropriate fine. As long as they have your ticket on file, they should be able to return your license once the fine is paid.
