SPRINGFIELD - Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced Tuesday the procedure for those who want a Temporary Visitor Driver's License.
Applicants will have to setup an appointment at four select Driver Services facilities. Those appointments can be scheduled beginning Nov. 12. The appointment itself will actually take place in early December.
The four driving facilities are:
- Chicago West, 5301 W. Lexington Ave.
- Springfield, 2701 S. Dirksen Pkwy
- Chicago North, 5401 N. Elston Ave.
- Bloomington, 1510 W. Market St.
In January 2014, the second phase of the TVDL roll out will be available for scheduled appointments at 21 additional facilities across the state.
"As soon as the General Assembly passed and the governor signed this legislation into law, my office began planning to implement the program in a way that improves road safety, highlights customer service, and underscores the importance of license integrity and security" says White. "This law will...guarantee that more drivers will purchase and maintain auto insurance."
The TVDL will have a purple border on top of it so people can easily see what it is. The standard driver's licenses' border is red. The TVDL is not considered to be valid identification.
Upon application for a TVDL, applicants must provide a valid passport or Consular ID Card, proof of name, written signature, date of birth, current address, and proof of at least one year of consecutive residency in the state. Also, upon receiving a TVDL, auto insurance must be purchased.
To schedule an appointment, call 855-236-1155.
