Joliet event to serve motorists unable to visit driver's license facilities

State Sen. Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant will host an event for motorists who have been unable to visit a driver services facility to renew their license and purchase vehicle stickers.

The event will be available to drivers from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday at the IBEW Local 176 Union Hall, located at 1100 NE Frontage Road in Joliet.

Bertino-Tarrant, D-Shorewood, will sponsor the free event along with the Secretary of State's office, according to a news release.

“I’m excited to partner with the secretary of state’s office to give drivers a safe and convenient way to renew and pay fees in Joliet,” Bertino-Tarrant said in the release.

“I urge Will County residents to take advantage of this resource,” she said.

The unit will operate 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.

In order to avoid long lines, Bertino-Tarrant asked residents to contact her office at 217-782-0052 to schedule an appointment.

REAL ID services will not be available at the event. The deadline to obtain a REAL ID was extended an additional year to Oct. 1, 2021.

Bertino-Tarrant also invites local veterans to utilize this event to add a veteran's designation to their driver's license or state ID. Residents must bring their DD-214 or NAF 13038 for the veteran designation.

For more information on veteran ID services, call the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs at 800-437-9824.
