Seniors aged 75 and older will have some extra time to renew their driver’s licenses. Jesse White, Illinois Secretary of State, announced Monday, that the expiration date for valid driver’s licenses held by Illinois drivers who are 75 years of age or older has been extended for a year past the current expiration date. This is to help older people not have to visit the driver’s facilities in order to keep exposure to COVID down until at least 2021. Illinois Secretary of State spokesperson Dave Druker says this is a way to help reduce long lines as well.
Druker says that if you qualify for this you’ll get a letter in the mail.
There are 147,000 drivers who are aged 75 and over who have expired or near expiring driver’s licenses in 2020. The Secretary of State is asking drivers to keep that letter with them as further proof of the extension.
