Driver services facilities across Illinois will remain closed for an additional month due to the coronavirus pandemic, Secretary of State Jesse White announced Friday, extending the closures into the new year.

White announced last month that the facilities would be closed statewide for nearly three weeks through Dec. 7, but has now lengthened the closures as the pandemic continues.

“As the health and safety of employees and the public are paramount, we decided to extend the closure of Driver Services facilities until Jan 4, 2021, due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic,” White said in a statement.

“Unfortunately, face-to-face transactions potentially increase the further spread of the virus, and protecting the health and safety of our residents is my top priority," he continued. "We have extended expiration dates to assist people during this difficult time. We are also offering services to CDL holders and new drivers at select facilities. In addition, I am encouraging customers to consider using online services that are available for many office transactions.”

Drivers will be able to conduct several types of transactions online including renewing a license plate sticker, renewing a valid driver's license for qualified individuals, renewing a valid ID card for those between the ages of 22 and 64, obtaining a driver record abstract and filing business services documents.

The expiration date for driver's licenses and ID cards has been extended until June 1, 2021.

Those who are eligible for online driver’s license renewal will receive a letter from the Secretary of State’s office with a PIN necessary for online renewal, according to officials.

Some facilities will be open to new drivers only, White announced. They include:

  • Bradley, 1111 Blatt St.
  • Charleston, 1010 E. St.
  • Chicago North, 5401 N. Elston Ave
