SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced Wednesday that the deadline to renew expired driver’s licenses and ID cards has been pushed to next year.  The three month extension moves the deadline to February 1st of 2021.

“Extending expiration dates until February 1 means people with an expired driver’s license and ID card do not need to visit a Driver Services facility immediately,” said White. “During this pandemic, we continue to think creatively to serve the public as efficiently as possible, while making public health and safety our top priority.”

License plates sticker renewals remain extended only until November 1st.
