SPRINGFIELD – While Driver Services facilities remain closed to the public, State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is reminding people that expiring driver’s licenses, vehicle registrations and other transactions will be extended at least 30 days after facilities reopen.
Secretary of State Jesse White closed all Drivers Services facilities statewide through April 30 due to the extension of the governor’s Stay at Home Order. After the facilities reopen, people will be able to renew documents that have expired during the closure with no penalty.
“I applaud the secretary of state’s efforts to keep employees and the public safe through this public health crisis by offering many services online,” Bennett said. “You may not physically be able to go to these facilities right now, but you can utilize their services from home.” 
Bennett is encouraging residents to take advantage of the secretary of state’s online services at 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.
“Utilizing these online services will reduce foot traffic and check-in lines once Drivers Services facilities reopen,” Bennett said.
Bennett is also reminding residents that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has extended the federal REAL ID deadline an additional year to Oct. 1, 2021. Current Illinois driver’s licenses or ID cards will continue to be accepted at airports, military bases and secure federal facilities.
Bennett urges residents with questions or concerns to call his office at 217-355-5252 or visit
