Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(Section scheduled to be repealed on October 1, 2023)
(a) In response to the interruption of services available to the public as a result of the public health disaster caused by Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), a novel severe acute respiratory illness that spreads rapidly through respiratory transmissions, the extended closure of State government offices and private sector businesses caused by COVID-19, and the need to ameliorate any detrimental impact on members of the public caused by that interruption of services, the Secretary of State is hereby given the authority to adopt emergency rulemakings, and to adopt permanent administrative rules:
(1) extending until not later than December 31,
2022, the expiration dates of driver's licenses, driving permits, monitoring device driving permits, restricted driving permits, and identification cards which were issued with expiration dates on or after January 1, 2020. During the period of any extensions implemented pursuant to this subsection, all driver's licenses, driving permits, monitoring device driving permits, restricted driving permits, and identification cards, shall be subject to any terms and conditions under which the original document was issued; and
(2) modifying the requirements for the renewal of
driver's licenses, driving permits, monitoring device driving permits, restricted driving permits, and identification cards. No such modification shall apply for more than one renewal cycle after the effective date of the rulemaking.
(b) When the renewal of any driver's license, driving permit, monitoring device driving permit, restricted driving permit, or identification card has been extended pursuant to this Section, it shall be renewed during the period of an extension. Any such renewals shall be from the original expiration date and shall be subject to the full fee which would have been due had the renewals been issued based on the original expiration date, except that no late filing fees or penalties shall be imposed.
(c) All law enforcement agencies in the State of Illinois and all State and local governmental entities shall recognize the validity of, and give full legal force to, extensions granted pursuant to this Section.
(d) Upon the request of any person whose driver's license, driving permit, monitoring device driving permit, restricted driving permit, or identification card has been subject to an extension under this Section, the Secretary shall issue a statement verifying the extension was issued pursuant to Illinois law, and requesting any foreign jurisdiction to honor the extension.
(e) This Section is repealed on October 1, 2023.
