Secretary of State Departments and Driver Services Facilities to Reopen Monday

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White is announcing that all Secretary of State departments will reopen for in-person transactions – including Driver Services facilities – on Monday, January 24. Driver Services facilities operating on a Tuesday – Saturday schedule will reopen on Tuesday, January 25. All departments and Driver Services facilities had been closed since January 3 due to the surge of COVID-19 cases statewide.

“The health and safety of employees and the public is our top priority,” said White. “Masks and social distancing will be required as we safely reopen all offices and Driver Services facilities.”

Customers who wish to schedule an appointment at one of the select Driver Services facilities requiring appointments may do so beginning the morning the facilities reopen. Visit for a list of Driver Services facilities requiring appointments.
