Illinois Temporary Visitor Driver’s License

In 2013, a new bill created the new temporary visitor driver's license program in Illinois. It allows undocumented (non-visa status) individuals to apply for a temporary visitor driver's license, also known as a TVDL. Anyone who wishes to apply must have resided in the State of Illinois for more than 12 months. The temporary visitor driver's license gives the holder the privilege to drive, it is not valid for identification purposes. The license is marked with "Not valid for identification". This means that the license cannot be used to board an airplane, enter a federal building, register to vote or apply for a Firearm Owner Identification. To apply for an Illinois temporary visitor driver's license, you must make an advance appointment at one of the 36 designated Driver Services facilities. Just like any other driver's license, you must pass a vision test, the driver knowledge test, and a behind-the-wheel road test.

This log must verify that they have driven under the supervision of a licensed driver at least 21 years of age, for not less than 50 hours (at least 15 hours at night). If a parent or guardian completes a parent class and submits such a certificate at the time of the road test, the supervised driving log must contain at least 40 hours (instead of 50). 15 hours must still be nighttime driving).

More than 3,000 30 mph signs have been replaced by new 25 mph signs around the city. Ever since taking office, Bill de Blasio has argued that forcing motorists to slow down, even slightly, could save the lives of pedestrians. It is only five miles an hour less than the current limit, but de Blasio is convinced that the simple change will have an important effect.
