Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White is reminding the public that the extension of expiration dates for driver’s licenses and ID cards end on December 1st.  White first initiated the extension in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic.  To address the high customer volume caused by the pandemic, White’s office expanded online renewals for expired driver’s licenses and ID cards and continues to mail letters to eligible customers.
