Secretary of State extends expirations


SPRINGFIELD — Expiration dates for Illinois drivers' licenses, ID cards, and learners' permits have been extended until July 31, Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced today. The previous extension was March 31. This new extension does not apply to commercial driver's licenses or commercial learner's permits.

White's office also extended online renewals for expired drivers' licenses and ID cards and will continue to mail letters to eligible customers. The letter provides customers a PIN number to renew online instead of visiting a facility.
Customers who must visit a facility include first-time driver's license or ID card applicants, first-time REAL ID applicants, and drivers ages 75 and older who are required by law to visit a facility when renewing their license.
Other online services include obtaining a duplicate driver's license and ID card, ordering a driving record, and purchasing license plate stickers. 
White's office is also extending the expiration dates of redistricted driving permits to July 31 for those that expired on or after Dec. 1, 2021, through July 30.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security extended the federal REAL ID deadline to May 3, 2023.
