Driver’s License & ID Renewals Extended to February 1, 2021

State Rep. Darren Bailey (R-Xenia) is working with the Secretary of State to let Illinois residents know about the extension to renew expired driver’s licenses and identification cards until February 1, 2021. The extension means those with licenses and IDs expiring in October, November, December and January will not need to renew them until February.

According to the Secretary of State, this extension is necessary given the ongoing pandemic. The extension does not apply to license plate stickers. The state previously extended the stickers to remain valid until Nov. 1. That deadline will remain in effect and the state encourages Illinoisans to get their renewals online.

Also, the Secretary of State recently extended the expiration date for driver’s licenses for those over the age of 75. The licenses will remain valid until their birthday in 2021.
