CHICAGO (AP) - Seven Driver Services’ locations run by the Illinois Secretary of State’s office will reopen Tuesday with drive-through service for drivers who need to renew vehicle registration stickers.

Secretary of State Jesse White said the seven buildings were chosen because they allow for drive-through transactions as Illinois continues coping with the spread of the coronavirus.

He said all employees will wear face masks and he encouraged people who need to visit to wear their own face coverings.

“My commitment is to do everything we can to help protect the health and safety of our residents, while providing services to the people of Illinois,” White said in a statement.

Three of the facilities are in Chicago; four others are in Rockford, Macomb, Tilton and Springfield.



People can still renew their vehicle registration stickers online, White said. Many people also can renew driver’s licenses online or request duplicate licenses or identification cards.

White’s office has said expiration dates for driver’s licenses, identification cards and vehicle registrations will be extended for at least 90 days after Driver Services facilities can reopen.

White said his office is working on a broader reopening plan and will announce more details soon.
