Deadline Extension for Illinois Residents

The Illinois Secretary of State’s office has announced that the deadline to renew driver’s licenses, ID cards and license plate stickers has been extended to Nov. 1. This new extension will also apply to those who have July, August and September expiration dates. These expired documents will remain valid until Nov. 1.

The Secretary of State’s office continues to urge the public to consider using online services instead of visiting a facility due to the increased demand for services. Customers with online access can visit www.cyberdriveillinois.com to utilize online services, including renewing license plate stickers.

Driver Services facilities are only serving new drivers, customers with expired driver’s licenses or ID cards, and vehicle transactions until July 31. Customers are required to wear a face mask while at the facility. Customers who must visit a facility are asked to be patient due to the high volume and to be prepared to wait outside due to social distancing requirements.

Additionally, customers who must visit a facility to renew their driver’s license or ID card are encouraged to use the preregistration application at www.cyberdriveillinois.com, which will speed up their transaction.

Staying Safe at Home During the Coronavirus Crisis

Notice: At Western Illinois Area Agency on Aging (WIAAA), the health and safety of all our participants and staff is our first priority. In the wake of the evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, WIAAA has closed the office and staff are working from home until further notice. Phone lines are still open and being answered remotely during business hours (8am to 5pm) so the public may still reach us. All participants who had scheduled appointments were contacted via phone and sent a letter notifying them of this closure.  We will announce the reopening of our office as soon as the shut down in Illinois is lifted and will begin accepting in person appointments again.
