Please note the following:

  • Signature comparison is required in the verification process.
  • The number of documents required depends on whether an applicant is applying for a driver’s license/ID card for the first time, or requesting a duplicate or corrected driver’s license/ID card.
  • One document may satisfy more than one group.
  • New residents must surrender all out-of-state licenses/ID cards prior to issuance of an Illinois driver’s license/ID card.
  • An applicant applying for a Temporary Visitor Driver’s License is not required to present documents from Group C. Instead, the applicant must sign a declaration on the TVDL application that the applicant is, at the time of application, ineligible to obtain a Social Security number.
