How do I renew my driver’s license online in Illinois?
Does Illinois offer an online driver’s license renewal service or will I have to do it in person? The last time I went to renew my license I stood in line for almost two hours, so I’d like to avoid that if possible.

That definitely doesn’t sound fun! Luckily, Illinois allows you to renew your driver’s license online by following these steps:
- Make sure you meet all of the Safe Driver Renewal Program eligibility requirements. Check your renewal notice to see if it lists you as a Safe Driver.
- Use the PIN or Renewal Authorization Number from your renewal letter to access the online renewal portal through the Secretary of State website.
- Complete the renewal application. Be prepared to verify your identity with your Social Security number.
- Pay the associated fee using your credit or debit card.
