secretary of stateWESTERN SPRINGS – To help keep Illinois’ senior residents from waiting in line at the DMV, State Senator Suzy Glowiak Hilton (D-Western Springs) reminded drivers age 75 and older that their driver’s license expiration dates have been extended by one year.

“The one-year extension for older drivers is the latest action to help seniors avoid or delay a visit to the DMV during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Glowiak Hilton said. “This extension will give our elder population the option to plan a visit when they are comfortable, with no penalty.”

To qualify for the extension, drivers must be 75 years of age or older and have a valid license—drivers whose licenses have been suspended or revoked do not qualify for the one-year extension. Eligible drivers should soon receive a letter from the secretary of state as proof that they qualify.

For drivers under age 75, expiration dates for driver’s licenses, ID cards and license plate stickers have been extended until Nov. 1, 2020. Customers who choose to visit a facility must wear a face mask. In addition, customers are asked to be patient due to heavy volume and to be prepared to wait outside in various types of weather.

Glowiak Hilton continues to encourage drivers to visit www.cyberdriveillinois.com to avoid waiting in line and take advantage of online services, including replacements and renewals of registrations, driver’s licenses and ID cards.
