Illinois DMVs will reopen beginning June 1, according to a plan announced by Secretary of State Jesse White.
During the first two months of operation, through July 31, the state's drivers services facilities will focus on serving only new drivers, those with expired licenses or ID cards, and vehicle transactions.
White said there are more than 700,000 expired driver’s licenses/ID cards in Illinois and 1.9 million expired vehicle registrations.
"All expiration dates for driver's licenses, ID cards and vehicle registrations have been extended at least 90 days after the governor's June 1 disaster proclamation executive order ends," White said.
All Secretary of State departments and offices will reopen for business on June 1, but driver services facilities will have varying dates and times and some will even have extended hours.

"Plexiglass dividers have been installed at all work stations and tape has been applied to the floor in 6-foot intervals to follow social distancing guidelines, limiting the number of customers inside a facility at one time."
