EXTENTION SM AD March 31

CHAMPAIGN – State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is reminding Illinois drivers they will now have an additional three months to renew their licenses.

“The secretary of state’s office is taking the necessary steps to protect the public and its employees,” Bennett said. “This deadline extensions gives everybody the opportunity to skip the long lines and get their licenses renewed on time.”

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, Bennett encourages people to take advantage 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.

Bennett 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.
