Add DMV's to the ever-growing list of places that will be closed temporally due to the COVID-19 virus.

It was announced on Monday by Secretary of State, Jesse White, that due to growing concerns with the COVID-19 virus that all Driver Service Facilities will be closed from March 17th through March 30th.

And because of the closure, anyone that has a driver’s licenses, identification (ID) cards, vehicle registrations, or other transactions that are expiring will be granted a 30-day extension.

Secretary White has also asked the Department of Homeland Security to push back the federal start date for REAL ID's in Illinois, which is October 1, 2020.

After careful consideration, it is clear that this decision to close offices and Driver Services facilities is the right one to make for the health and safety of Illinoisans,” said White. “This important action will help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.”

Transactions can still be done online:
