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.

Study on age-related changes that affect driving abilities.
By October 1, 2023 the Secretary of State shall conduct a study on age-related changes in vision, physical functioning, and the ability to reason and remember, as well as any other diseases and medications that might affect safe driving abilities. When conducting the study, the Secretary of State may utilize data or academic studies conducted by other sources, including, but not limited to, other states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Geriatrics Society, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Upon completion of the study, if the study shows that there is no immediate risk to public safety, the Secretary of State may adopt administrative rules to raise or lower the age requirement for actual demonstrations, provided that the required age shall be no lower than the minimum age required under subsection (c) of Section 6-109 of the Illinois Vehicle Code.
