Most companies will only run the current MVR so in your case Texas would be pulled and the Illinois ticket will not show up. The issue would be if the underwriters pull the Illinois records and see the ticket they will add it to your policy after you have bound it. My best advice is to disclose the ticket to your agent you are working with and let them advise you. Every company will treat this situation differently. They may say it was fine since it was under an old license number while others may say you still need it placed on to avoid any problems in the future.
