Illinois DMV Guide - The Illinois Department of Motor Vehicle Explained

The Office of the Illinois Secretary of State – Driver Services

The Illinois Secretary of State oversees driving services throughout its 102 counties.

At a DMV office, you can do tasks like IL driver permitting & licensing, vehicle registrations & renewals, title transfers and duplications, tax services, driving records, and more. Drivers can also access a wealth of information on-location or gather copies of important forms for their driving-related needs.

DMVConnect has created an easy way to navigate the Illinois DMV system.

We know going to an IL DMV office gets frustrating with long wait times, endless forms, and unexpected requirements that turn the trip into a total waste. We took the most important information and compiled it into easy-to-understand ILDMV guides. Our guides and articles share Illinois DMV locations, what to expect when going, and how to complete different driving needs without the troubles.

Here is a quick overview of what you’ll find in this state hub:

Need to Make an Illinois DMV Appointment?

It would be nice if Illinois had open appointments for their locations… but what they have is limited.

You can set up appointments for CDL road exams and some temporary driver’s licenses when visiting, though. If this applies to you then use the Fast Pass system to schedule an appointment.

Everyone else? Use DMVConnect as your personal guide to ILDMV driver services and its system.

We hope you’ll find going to the DMV (or using their online or mail-in options) isn’t as difficult and annoying as they once seemed. A lot has changed since you last went to the DMV! We’re here to make the process as easy and smooth as possible.
