ID SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Doris Turner (D-Springfield) is reminding Illinois drivers they will now have an additional three months to renew their licenses.

“With the predicted surge in COVID-19 cases around the state, it’s important to take as many steps to slow the spread of the disease as much as we can,” Turner said. “Many services have been made available online, so I encourage you to take full advantage of the new extension and the secretary of state’s website.”

Secretary of State Jesse White’s office announced Friday that expiration dates for driver’s licenses and ID cards has been extended an additional three months to March 31, 2022. However, the new expiration date does not apply to commercial driver’s licenses. The extension comes as secretary of state offices across Illinois continue to get caught up following COVID-19-related closures to their daily operations.

To cut down on long lines and wait times, people can visit of the secretary of state’s online services at ilsos.gov. These services include:

  • Renewing a vehicle registration;
  • Applying for a vehicle title and registration;
  • Obtaining a duplicate driver’s license or ID card;
  • Obtaining a driving record abstract;
  • Renewing a standard driver’s license with the Safe Driver Renewal program.

Turner is also reminding residents the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has extended the federal REAL ID deadline to May 3, 2023. Current Illinois driver’s licenses or ID cards will continue to be accepted at airports, military bases and secure federal facilities.
