What happens if I get pulled over for a DUI and I’m driving on a suspended license?

I'm not planning on doing this but I am curious of the punishment for it. Does your license get suspended for longer or does it get revoked for a period of time? Or because its a DUI does your license get taken away anyway?

    Well any suspension or evocation will be for a longer time and will affect your ability to get your license back at all.

    There are many jurisdictions that I know of that if arrested for DUI or any other offense while your driving license is suspended you could be facing as much as six (6) months in jail. Additionally, there is additional suspensions placed on your driving privileges consecutive to the suspensions already in place.

    In Illinois - if you are suspended or revoked due to a DUI - you can be charged with a felony DUI.

    In Illinois, you will be facing the enhanced charge of Aggravated DUI, even for a first offense. With that, you are facing 1-3 years in prison. Your license is suspended, and that constitutes a stop on your license. With a DUI, that will result in a second hold being placed on your driving privileges. If convicted of that subsequent DUI, you will get a revocation, and it is extremely hard to get your privileges back.
