The Illinois Secretary of State’s Office (SOS) has announced that expiration dates for driver’s licenses and ID cards have been extended an additional three months, from Nov. 1, 2020, to Feb. 1, 2021. The new Feb. 1 extension also includes those who have October, November, December, and January expiration dates. The new extension does not apply to license plate stickers, which are extended until Nov. 1, 2020.
The public is encouraged to consider using SOS online services whenever possible instead of visiting a facility. Customers who wish to conduct business online can go to www.cyberdriveillinois.com. Available online services include renewing license plate stickers, obtaining a duplicate driver’s license or ID card, obtaining a driving record abstract, or renewing a standard driver’s license through the safe driver renewal program. People who conduct online transactions will avoid waiting in line at a facility.
The Secretary of State’s Office recently extended the driver’s license expiration date for qualified drivers who are 75 and older by one year. Their new expiration date is their birthday in 2021.
For those customers who choose to visit a facility, face masks are required. Customers are asked to be patient due to potential high volume and be prepared to wait outside in various weather conditions due to social distancing requirements.
