Aurora, Ill. – Continuing to advocate for residents in the district, state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, is reminding residents about the announcement from the Secretary of State’s office to extend the expiration dates of Illinois Driver’s Licenses and state ID cards until Jan. 1, 2022.

“There are many residents who are worried about rushing to the Secretary of State’s office because they either have an expired ID or it will be expiring soon,” said Kifowit. “Extending the expiration dates allows residents to not have to worry and rush to the DMV where a minor inconvenience might turn into a whole day’s chore.”

Earlier this week, after legislation that was supported by Kifowit passed to allow the Secretary of State’s office to exercise emergency powers, Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced that his office will be extending the expiration dates for driver’s licenses and state ID cards that have expired or will be expiring in 2021 to Jan. 1, 2022. However, this extension does not apply to commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) and CDL learner’s permits.

Kifowit continues to urge residents in the 84th district to consider using online services when possible to decrease heavy in-person customer volume. To renew a new driver’s license or state ID card online, as well as purchase license plate stickers, please visit the Secretary of State’s office website at

“This extension will give some peace of mind to our residents so they don’t feel the need to all rush to the office at once, especially while we are still working our way out of a pandemic,” said Kifowit. “It might also be easier for residents to visit the Secretary of State’s website and renew their licenses and ID cards rather than visit in-person and wait in line.”
