July 8th, 2020- Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced that expiration dates for driver’s licenses/ID cards and license plate stickers have been extended an additional month – from Oct. 1, 2020, to Nov. 1, 2020.
This new Nov. 1 extension also includes those who have July, August, and September expiration dates. As a result, expired documents will remain valid until Nov. 1 so customers do not need to rush into Driver Services facilities, especially during the current heatwave.
White continues to urge the public to consider using online services when possible instead of visiting a facility due to heavy customer volume. Customers who can conduct business online may go to www.cyberdriveillinois.com to take advantage of online services – such as renewing license plate stickers – from the comfort of their own home. People who conduct online transactions will avoid waiting in line at a facility.
White noted that online transactions continue to flourish, with June 2020 seeing an increase of 110 percent in online license plate sticker renewals when compared to June 2019. Month/Year Online License Plate Sticker Renewals June 2020 447,103 (110% increase) June 2019 212,396
Through July 31, Driver Services facilities are serving ONLY new drivers, customers with expired driver’s licenses/ID cards, and vehicle transactions.
