One step closer to normalcy in Illinois as the Secretary of State announced on Facebook they will reopen some driver's license facilities.

Now before you start preparing yourself for the nightmare that is the DMV, you won't be going inside just yet.

However, Rockford is home to an already functioning drive-thru license plate sticker renewal system so it only makes sense that it would be one of the first things to reopen.

Rockford-Central, as it is called in the Facebook post, is located at 3720 East State, and will be open starting tomorrow at 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Then again Wednesday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 7:30 12 p.m.

This is the first step in a comprehensive reopening plan that will be announced shortly and will include the proper protections for customers and employees, such as PPE and social distancing.

Even if your sticker is past due, you don't need to rush to the DMV to renew. Driver's licenses, ID cards, and vehicle sticker expiration dates have been extended at least 90 days once the shelter in place order is lifted.
