Three Commercial Drivers License (CDL) facilities are opening due to growing demand for drivers for commercial and agricultural reasons. State Senator Andy Manar announced via press release that Springfield Dirksen is among the trio of facilities that will open for operation. The other two facilities are Marion and West Chicago.
Senator Manar was quoted in the press release as saying, “The trucking industry plays an extraordinary role in the health and safety of Illinois residents during this difficult time. A shortage of divers could restrict our food supply, pandemic response efforts, and economic recovery.”
Springfield Dirksen will be operating Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm under special precautions from the Secretary of State’s Office to endure the safety of employees and applicants.
CDL tests will be by appointment only, and other transactions will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
