Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that the amendatory Act may be referred to as the License to Work Act. Deletes language providing that all notices sent to a person involved in an administrative proceeding shall state that failure to satisfy any fine or penalty shall result in the Secretary of State suspending his or her driving privileges, vehicle registration, or both. Provides that the Secretary is authorized to cancel any license or permit if the holder failed to pay any fees owed to the Secretary for the license or permit (rather than failure to pay any fees, civil penalties owed to the Illinois Commerce Commission, or taxes due upon reasonable notice and demand). Provides that a person whose driver's license was canceled, suspended, or revoked under certain circumstances shall have his or her driving privileges reinstated.

Provides that the Secretary is authorized to suspend or revoke the driving privileges of any person without a preliminary hearing if the person has been convicted of criminal trespass to vehicle if the person exercised actual physical control over the vehicle during the commission of the offense. Provides that in order to be subject to suspension or revocation for violation of specific provisions of the Liquor Control Act of 1934, a person must also be an occupant of a motor vehicle at the time of the violation. Deletes language authorizing the Secretary to suspend or revoke the driving privileges of a person without a preliminary hearing for specific adjudications or violations. Deletes language providing that the owner of a registered vehicle that has failed to pay any fine or penalty due and owing as a result of 10 or more violations shall have his or her driving privileges suspended.
