driver licenses 100521NEW LENOX – In partnership with the Illinois Secretary of State’s office, State Senator Patrick Joyce is sponsoring a free mobile unit event for motorists who have been unable to visit a driver services facility.

The free event will be available to motorists Friday, July 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the New Lenox Village Hall, located at 1 Veterans Parkway.

“The Secretary of State’s mobile unit is a one-stop shop to help people access these important state services,” said Joyce (D-Essex). “I encourage folks to take advantage of this safe and convenient way to renew their driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations next month.”

The unit operates like a DMV office and offers driver’s license renewals, identification cards and license plate stickers. Attendees must wear face coverings, and social distancing rules must be followed.

Joyce reminds residents that REAL ID services will not be available at the mobile unit. The deadline to obtain a REAL ID has been extended to May 3, 2023.

In addition, Joyce invites local veterans to utilize this event to add a veteran’s designation to their driver’s license or state ID. For veteran designation, residents must bring their DD-214 or NAF 13038. For more information about veteran ID services, call the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs at 1-800-437-9824.

With questions or for additional information, contact Senator Joyce’s office at or call 708-756-0882.
