BELLEVILLE, Ill. – To inform Illinois drivers with the most up-to-date information available from the Secretary of State’s office during the COVID-19 pandemic, state Rep. Jay Hoffman, D-Swansea, is reassuring residents about the extension of expiration dates for driver’s licenses, vehicles registrations and other transactions handled by the State.

“The Illinois Secretary of State’s office has taken steps to extend timelines and expiration dates for at least 90 days due to the coronavirus,” Hoffman said. “Illinois drivers can be assured that their licenses and registration will remain valid until we get through this public health crisis.”

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White’s office announced last week that it proceeded with filing emergency rules enabling the extension of driver’s licenses, vehicle registration documentation, as well as other transactions until Driver’s Services operations are able to safely reopen. White’s office is encouraging drivers to visit their website at as online services remain available and open.

“State government is working around the clock to ensure vital services remain up and running during this challenging time,” Hoffman said. “I applaud Secretary of State Jesse White for recognizing the critical need for Illinoisans to remain on the road safely and legally until non-essential services are able to reopen.”
