CHICAGO HEIGHTS – State Senator Patrick Joyce (D-Essex) and State Representative Anthony DeLuca (D-Chicago Heights) are pleased to announce that Chicago Heights motorists will have access to a new driver services facility for in-person transactions.

Starting Tuesday, Jan. 25, drivers in the Southland will have a safe and convenient way to renew their driver’s license, identification cards and license plate stickers at the new and improved Chicago Heights DMV located at 570 W. 209th St. in Chicago Heights.

“I'd like to thank the team at secretary of state's office, Secretary White, Rep. DeLuca and Prairie State College for making this transition possible,” Joyce said. “Even under difficult circumstances, there has never been a gap in services, but now drivers will have the opportunity to go inside a modernized facility in Chicago Heights and get the help they need.”

Over the past eight months, Joyce and DeLuca worked with the secretary of state’s office and Prairie State College to set up a temporary facility at the college giving drivers a convenient location to access these vital services.

After much delay, Joyce and DeLuca are thrilled to announce that construction is finally complete at the new Chicago Heights DMV facility.

Joyce and DeLuca are reminding drivers that expiration dates for driver's licenses and ID cards have been extended to March 31. Commercial driver's licenses (CDL) and CDL learner's permits are extended to Jan. 31, with expiration dates covered between Nov. 1, 2021 and Jan. 31, 2022. Additionally, the federal government has extended the REAL ID deadline until May 3, 2023.
