JOLIET, Ill. – Working to provide convenient access to state services to the people in their district, State Rep. Larry Walsh, Jr., D – Joliet, and state Senator John Connor, D-Lockport, are partnering with the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office to host a mobile Department of Vehicle Services (DMV) on December 15 from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M. at the Stone City VFW Post 2199.
“During different stages of the pandemic, the DMVs across the state were forced to close their doors now leading to a backlog of people needing to renew their IDs or plate stickers,” said Walsh. “I encourage folks to avoid the lines and stop by the Stone City VFW on December 15.”
Offering many of the same services as a regular DMV, Walsh and Connor ‘s event will offer services such as renewal or correction or a driver’s license, state ID cards, license plate sticker, motor vehicle registration, and organ donor registration. However, Real ID compliant driver’s licenses and residents over the age of 75 must visit a permanent Secretary of State driver’s services facility. The event will also offer serve as an I-Cash event, a program through the Illinois State Treasurer’s office to help residents search for unclaimed property currently being help by the state and begin the process of having it returned to them. The event will be on December 15 from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M. at the Stone City VFW Post 2199 located at 214 Stone City Dr. in Joliet. Those unable to attend the event can still access many of the same services online at the Secretary of State’s office website at www.cyberdriveillinois.com. Residents can also search I-Cash and file a claim on their own by visiting https://icash.illinoistreasurer.gov.
“In addition to being a voice for Joliet area in Springfield, a large part of my job is helping connect people to the different services offered by the state, such as driver services and I-Cash,” said Walsh. “We will be a one-stop-shop for folks looking to renew their licenses and see if they have unclaimed cash owed to them.”
