Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases, Secretary of State Jesse White has reinstated mask wearing starting Monday, August 2nd at all Driver Services Facilities for all customers and employees. This will be required at all Driver Services Facilities, Secretary of State offices, and the Illinois State Capitol.
White says that his facilities will remain open to serve the public, but that the mask policy will help keep customers safe and allow the facilities to stay open at the same time. There are extended expiration dates for driver’s licenses and ID cards until January 1st, 2022. Expired documents will remain valid until that day.
White urges customers to consider going online for their DMV needs when possible. Find out more information about what you can do on the website by visiting www.cyberdriveillinois.com.

The US Department of Homeland Security has extended the federal REAL ID deadline to May of 2023.
