Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(15 ILCS 305/30)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on June 30, 2021)
(a) Upon the Governor of the State of Illinois issuing a statewide disaster proclamation based on a health pandemic or similar emergency, the Secretary may extend for the duration of the proclaimed disaster and for up to a period of 120 days beyond the expiration of the disaster proclamation:
(1) the expiration dates of driver's licenses,
driving permits, identification cards, disabled parking placards and decals, and vehicle registrations; and
(2) the expiration dates of professional licenses,
registrations, certifications and commissions issued by the Secretary, including but not limited to, vehicle dealership licenses, commercial driver training school licenses, and securities, broker and investment adviser registrations.
After the initial 120-day extension, the Secretary may adopt subsequent 30-day extensions only upon a determination that circumstances necessitate additional extensions. The Secretary must adopt any subsequent 30-day extension prior to the previous lapsing.
(b) To provide for the expeditious and timely implementation of this amendatory Act of the 101st General Assembly, any emergency rules to implement the extension provisions of this Section must be adopted by the Secretary of State, subject to the provisions of Section 5-45 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. Any such rule shall:
(1) identify the disaster proclamation authorizing
(2) set forth the expirations being extended (for
example, "this extension shall apply to all driver's licenses, driving permits, identification cards, disabled parking placards and decals, and vehicle registrations expiring on [date] through [date]"); and
(3) set forth the date on which the extension period
becomes effective, and the date on which the extension will terminate if not extended by subsequent emergency rulemaking.
(c) Where the renewal of any driver's license, driving permit, identification card, disabled parking placard or decal, vehicle registration, or professional license, registration, certification or commission has been extended pursuant to this Section, it shall be renewed during the period of an extension. Any such renewal shall be from the original expiration date and shall be subject to the full fee which would have been due had the renewal been issued based on the original expiration date, except that no late filing fees or penalties shall be imposed.
(d) All law enforcement agencies in the State of Illinois and all State and local governmental entities shall recognize the validity of, and give full legal force to, extensions granted pursuant to this Section.
(e) Upon the request of any person or entity whose driver's license, driving permit, identification card, disabled parking placard or decal, vehicle registration, or professional license, registration, certification or commission has been subject to an extension under this Section, the Secretary shall issue a statement verifying the extension was issued pursuant to Illinois law, and requesting any foreign jurisdiction to honor the extension.
(f) This Section is repealed on June 30, 2021.
