Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White recently announced that his office has launched an online driver’s license and ID card preregistration application program to reduce the processing time of transactions at Driver Services facilities. It is a proactive approach that will save customers time during their facility visit.

Customers may go to www.cyberdriveillinois.com to access the preregistration application for driver’s licenses and ID cards and input specific information regarding their upcoming transaction. As a result, once the customer visits a Driver Services facility, the clerk will not have to enter all of the data such as a change of address or a change of height and weight into the electronic application form because the customer already has updated the information. This will improve the efficiency of these transactions.

“The program is easy to use and can be accessed on a computer, iPad or smartphone,” White said.

Customers using the preregistration application still must bring all of the required paperwork to the Driver Services facility for verification. In addition, they are encouraged to bring the printed preregistration receipt to the facility for the clerk to scan the barcode.

Driver Services facilities statewide are open to serve only new drivers, customers with expired driver’s licenses/ID cards and vehicle transactions. White reiterated that expiration dates for driver’s licenses/ID cards and vehicle registration stickers have been extended until Oct. 1, so customers do not need to rush into a facility.
