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, Jan. 24. Driver Services facilities operating on a Tuesday – Saturday schedule will reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 25. All departments and Driver Services facilities had been closed since Jan. 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.
