Illinois Driver Facilities Will Close Until Early December Due to COVID-19
Remember back in March when everything started shutting down? Well, that's starting to happen again. If you've had a trip to the DMV planned, it's going to have to wait a little bit. After closing earlier in the year, facilities have been open for the past few months. But now, they're shutting down again for a while.
Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced Driver Services facilities statewide will be closed to the public for in person transactions effective Tuesday, Nov. 17 and will reopen on Monday, Dec. 7, 2020.
According to WREX -
The state also announced that expiration dates for driver’s licenses and ID cards will be extended until June 1, 2021. This June 1, 2021 extension also includes those who have February, March, April and May 2021 expiration dates. As a result, expired driver’s licenses and ID cards will remain valid until June 1, 2021.
But don't worry if you had something you needed to get done. Here's all the stuff you can do online -
- Renewing a license plate sticker;
- Renewing a valid driver’s license for qualifying drivers;
- Renewing a valid ID card for those age 22-64 (seniors 65 and older have free, non-expiring IDs);
- Obtaining a driver record abstract;
- Filing Business Services documents, such as incorporations and annual reports
- Customers with issues involving administrative hearings may contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
It was also announced that seven facilities will be offering drive-through services for license plate sticker transactions ONLY. The seven drive-through facilities include the Rockford-Central location at 3720 E. State St.
