New IL Driver's Licenses/State ID Cards

Illinois Secretary of State

On May 17, the Illinois Secretary of State's (SOS) office announced a transition plan to move Illinois toward compliance with federal REAL ID requirements. According to a press release, by the end of July 2016, state drivers' license facilities will no longer issue permanent drivers' licenses and state ID cards. Instead, applicants for state IDs will receive a "temporary secure paper driver's license" valid for 45 days which will serve as proof of identification until they receive their permanent cards from a central issuance facility. The Secretary of State says the newly-upgraded ID cards will also help deter fraud and identify theft. The SOS is also advancing related state legislation, Senate Bill 637, House Amendment #2, which passed the House Judiciary-Civil Committee unanimously last week.
