SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – All departments of the Illinois Secretary of State will not conduct in-person transactions, including chauffeur services, for another week, until Jan. 24, the agency announced Thursday, citing the still high number of COVID-19 cases statewide.

Driver Services facilities operating on a Tuesday-Saturday schedule will reopen on Tuesday, January 25.
“We are excited to see what appears to be the start of a decline in COVID-19 cases and, if this trend continues, we will reopen on January 24 for face-to-face transactions,” the secretary said. Jesse White State.
White said three commercial driver’s license locations will open on Tuesday, Jan. 18, for in-person CDL services only. CDL facilities are in Rockford, Springfield and Marion.
White encourages the public to visitilsos.gov for online services, including renewing a license plate sticker, renewing a driver’s license or ID card, and filing documents for business services such as incorporations and annual reports.
