  1. The Secretary of Stateʼs Emergency Contact
    Database allows Illinois driverʼs license and
    ID cardholders to enter emergency, disability
    and special needs contact information into a
    voluntary, secure database. In the event of a
    motor vehicle crash or other emergency situ-
    ation when a person is unable to communi-
    cate directly, law enforcement can access the
    database to help reach the personʼs desig-
    nated contacts.

    A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR
    SENIOR DRIVERS
    Motorists who know the rules of the road and practice defensive driving are key to
    making our roadways safer for everyone. The Illinois Rules of the Road manual is
    your guide to being a responsible and skilled driver.
    The Rules of the Road Review Course is designed to give drivers — especially
    senior citizens — the knowledge and confidence needed to renew or obtain a dri-
    verʼs license. The Review Course combines an explanation of the driving exam
    with a practice written exam. The questions and information in the Rules of the
    Road Review Course are provided only to help you measure your knowledge of
    driving skills and Illinois traffic laws. Participants will not be graded on their
    answers on the practice exam.
    Along with a thorough review of the Illinois Rules of the Road manual, the Review
    Course is a valuable tool in refreshing your knowledge of Illinois driving laws, traf-
    fic signs and practical driving skills. I commend you for taking this step in improv-
    ing your driving skills and helping to make Illinois roadways safer for all motorists.
    Jesse White
    Secretary of State
    Effective January 1, 2010, drivers are prohibited from text messaging
    while driving and using cell phones in construction and school zones.

    OBTAINING AN ILLINOIS DRIVERʼS LICENSE
    OR ID CARD
    To obtain an Illinois driverʼs license or ID card for the first time, you must provide acceptable forms of
    identification to prove name, date of birth, Illinois residency, Social Security number and signa-
    ture for comparison. (See page 4 for a listing of acceptable and unacceptable documents.) New res-
    idents must surrender any out-of-state licenses or state ID cards issued prior to the issuance of an
    Illinois driverʼs license or ID card. When you apply for a driverʼs license, you will be asked questions
    about your general health and must take a vision, written and driving exam. You are allowed three
    attempts to pass each of the exams within one year from the date you paid your application fee.
    EARLY RENEWAL
    • Any driver age 21-86 may renew his/her driverʼs license up to one year before the license expires.
    • Any driver age 87 and older may renew up to six months before his/her license expires.
    VISION SCREENING
    Your vision will be screened to determine if you see well enough to drive. In place of this screening,
    you may submit a Vision Specialist Report (see pages 23-24) completed by a licensed optometrist,
    ophthalmologist or physician. Forms are available at your local Driver Services facility or at
    www.cyberdriveillinois.com. If you need to wear glasses or contact lenses, a restriction will be noted
    on your license. You must always wear your glasses or contact lenses when you drive.
    WRITTEN EXAM
    The written exam consists of 35 questions, 15 of which will address traffic sign identification and the
    remaining 20 will either be multiple choice or true/false questions.
    DRIVING EXAM
    All new drivers and drivers age 75 and older must take a driving exam to demonstrate driving ability.
    You must provide a vehicle that is licensed and properly equipped for the driverʼs license classifica-
    tion you are seeking. You must show proof of vehicle insurance inside the Driver Services facility.
    During the driving exam, which will allow you to drive passenger vehicles, you will be graded on your
    ability to do the following:
    • Start the vehicle • Back the vehicle • Turn about • Park uphill
    • Start uphill • Park downhill • Start downhill • Control your vehicle
    • Proper speed usage • Proper lane usage
    ORGAN/TISSUE DONOR REGISTRY
    During the driverʼs license applica tion/renewal process you will be asked if you wish to join the Illinoisʼ
    Organ/Tissue Donor Registry. A personʼs decision to be an organ/tissue  donor  is now  legally  binding.
    Additional witnesses or family consent is no longer required for donation to occur. If you registered
    before January 2006, you must re-register to ensure that your wishes to be a donor are honored.

    ILLINOIS SECRETARY OF STATE
    DOCUMENT REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN
    A DRIVERʼ LICENSE/STATE ID CARD
    The Acceptable Identification Document chart (reverse) lists documents that may be used as forms of
    identification to provide proof of name, date of birth, Social Security number and residency when apply-
    ing for a driverʼs license/ID card. 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 driverʼs
    license/ID card for the first time, or requesting a duplicate or corrected driverʼs 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 dri-
    verʼs license/ID card.
    • An applicant applying for a Temporary Visitor Driverʼs License is not required to present documents
    from Group C. Instead, the applicant must submit a letter on SSA letterhead with each application,
    issued within 90 days prior to the date of application, verifying ineligibility for a Social Security num-
    ber.
    FIRST-TIME ILLINOIS DRIVERʼS LICENSE/ID CARD APPLICANT
    An applicant applying for a driverʼs license or ID card for the first time in Illinois must present:
    • one document that satisfies each of Group A, B and C
    • two documents that satisfy Group D (one document from Group D if applicant is under age 5 apply-
    ing for an ID card; one document if applicant is applying for a no-fee ID card presenting a Homeless
    Status Certification)
    DUPLICATE/CORRECTED DRIVERʼS LICENSE/ID CARD APPLICANT
    An applicant applying for either a duplicate or corrected driverʼs license or ID card must present:
    • one document that satisfies Group A
    • one document that satisfies Group B, C or D (two documents from Group D if applicant is request-
    ing an address change to appear on the document, unless applicant is under age 5 applying for an
    ID card or applicant is applying for a no-fee ID card presenting a Homeless Status Certification)
    • An applicant who requests a change in name, date of birth, Social Security number or gender must
    provide identification to link the change from the previous information to the new information.
    ILLINOIS DRIVERʼS LICENSE/ID CARD RENEWAL APPLICANT
    An applicant renewing a current Illinois driverʼs license or ID card need only present his/her current
    valid driverʼs license or ID card if no changes are required. If the applicant does not have his/her cur-
    rent driverʼs license or ID card or changes are required, he/she must present:
    • one document that satisfies Group A
    • one document that satisfies each of Group B, C or D (two documents from Group D if applicant is
    requesting an address change to appear on the document unless applicant is renewing a no-fee ID
    card presenting a Homeless Status Certification)

  5. DRIVING EXAMINATION
    The driving exam is a demonstration of a driverʼs everyday driving skills. After the exam, the driver will
    be informed of any corrections that need to be made.
    BEFORE YOU BEGIN
    Illinois law requires that all persons in the front seat must wear safety belts. The examiner is required
    to wear a safety belt as well. Only those individuals with a physicianʼs statement on letterhead are
    exempt. The physicianʼs statement must be kept with you at all times as a driver in a vehicle or a front-
    seat passenger.
    The driving examination will allow you to demonstrate your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.
    You must provide a vehicle that is licensed and properly equipped for the driverʼs license classification
    you are seeking. The vehicle must be driven to the Driver Services facility by someone with a valid dri-
    verʼs license or permit. No one but the examiner will be with you during the exam.
    Proof of insurance must be shown before the driving exam is administered. Before starting the driving
    exam, check your mirrors, adjust your vehicleʼs seat and fasten your safety belt.
    THE EXAMINER
    The driving examiner will sit beside you and observe your driving skills. It is normal for you to be a lit-
    tle nervous. Remember that the examiner is a passenger and has no indication of your driving ability.
    It is possible that you may have acquired some potentially unsafe driving practices, even though you
    may have been driving for years with no moving violations or accidents. Perhaps there are some new
    laws you are not observing. The purpose of the driving exam is to identify those mistakes so you may
    correct them.
    The examiner will grade your driving using a list of driving maneuvers. The examiner will follow a test
    route approved by the Secretary of Stateʼs office. Although the test route may cover unfamiliar roads,
    it is important to remember that a driverʼs license gives you the right to drive on all roads.
    The examiner will not trick you. If you do not understand his or her instructions, please ask for an
    explanation.
    At the completion of your driving exam, the examiner will give you the results. Please keep in mind
    that the examiner is only an observer and has the responsibility to inform you of any mistakes. You are
    encouraged to correct those mistakes, not only for your own safety but also for the safety of others.

  6. DRIVING EXAM GRADING
    You will be graded on your ability to perform the following driving skills. You will automatically fail the exam
    if you violate any traffic law or commit any dangerous action while taking the exam.
    USING TURN SIGNALS
    Illinois law requires the use of turn signals. It is not a choice. Turn signals are required BEFORE:
    • turning any corner, even if no one is coming;
    • turning into any driveway, parking lot or parking space;
    • changing lanes of traffic;
    • AND AFTER passing another vehicle; and
    • pulling over to or pulling away from any curb.
    LEAVING A PARKING LOT OR DRIVEWAY
    Illinois law states that you must stop before entering any street from a driveway, parking lot or alley.
    If you are leaving the parking lot at the Driver Services facility, you must stop before entering the
    street. There may or may not be a stop sign present.
    STOPPING
    Stop behind the white line or crosswalk. If there is no white line or crosswalk, stop behind the stop
    sign. Rolling stops are automatic failures on the driving examination.
    TURNING A CORNER
    When turning a corner from a two-way street onto another two-way street, stay in your own lane and
    then turn into the lane in which you will be driving. Do not cut corners.
    HILL PARKING
    Signal toward the side of the road where you wish to park. Stop your vehicle parallel to the road,
    within 12 inches of the curb or road edge.
    If you park on a street with curbing and your vehicle is heading downhill, you must turn the front wheels
    toward the curb. If you park your vehicle headed uphill, you must turn the front wheels away from the
    curb. If you park on a street without curbing and your vehicle is heading downhill or uphill, you must
    turn the wheels toward the side of the road on which you are parked. In either situation, you must set
    the parking brake or put the gear selector in “Park”. (See diagram on page 8.)
    When leaving the curb, release your parking brake, turn the wheels from the side of the road and use
    your turn signal. Look for oncoming traffic. When it is safe, pull slowly onto the street.

  7. TURN-ABOUT
    You will be asked to turn your vehicle around by turning left into an alley,
    roadway or driveway. When you back out, stop before entering the side-
    walk, street or highway. Yield to pedestrians and all vehicles. When back-
    ing, check all rearview mirrors and look over your right shoulder. When
    backing to the right, make sure not to back over the center line.
    ONE-WAY TURNS
    When turning onto a one-way street, turn into the first lane you come to. After you have completed your
    turn, you may turn on your turn signal again, look back and, when it is safe, move into the other lane.

  8. LEFT TURNS
    When making a left turn onto a multi-lane street, you must turn into the inside lane (left-hand lane).
    After you have completed your turn into the inside lane and it is safe to do so, you may turn on your
    signal light and move into the right-hand lane.
    RIGHT TURNS
    When making a right turn into a multi-lane street, you must turn into the first lane you come to (right-
    hand lane). After you have completed your turn into the right-hand lane and it is safe to do so, you may
    turn on your signal light and move into the left-hand lane.
    BACKING VEHICLE
    You will be asked to back your vehicle for a short distance. Check first to see if it is clear. Look over your
    right shoulder if possible. If not, inform the examiner that because of a physical condition you cannot. If
    you cannot see all the way in back by looking, use your rearview mirror as well as your side mirrors. Back
    up as straight as you can. Do not weave back and forth.
    OTHER POINTS THAT WILL BE CHECKED
    • DRIVING SPEED — Observe all speed limit signs. Do not drive too slowly. (Example: The speed
    limit is 30 mph and a driver is going 15 mph, holding up traffic and causing an unsafe situation.
    Driving too slow can be just as dangerous as speeding under normal traffic conditions.)
    • CENTER LINES — Do not weave back and forth across the center line. Stay in your traffic lane. If
    there is no center line, do not drive down the middle of the street or road.
    • RIGHT-OF-WAY — Observe yield signs: When approaching a yield sign, slow down and check for
    traffic. Stop if you need to. Approaching an intersection: when a green light appears, be sure the
    intersection is clear of vehicles and people before moving your car. If there are no signs or traffic
    control signals and two vehicles arrive at the same time, the car on the right has the right-of-way.
    FOLLOWING THE EXAM
    When you return to the Driver Services facility, the examiner will discuss your test results. If you do not
    pass the driving exam, listen carefully to hear which driving skills you need to correct.
    You may take the driving exam again if you did not pass. Remember, you have three chances in a one-
    year period to pass the driving exam. If after several attempts you are still having difficulty, ask the
    examiner how to obtain an instruction permit after your driverʼs license expires.

    PERMANENT
    Placards are BLUE
    and issued to per-
    sons with perma-
    nent disabilities.
    The placard expires
    on the holderʼs
    birthdate in 2014.
    TEMPORARY
    Placards are RED
    and valid for the
    length of time indi-
    cated by the certi-
    fying physician,
    not to exceed six
    months if issued
    by the Secretary
    of State, and 90
    days if issued by a
    local municipality.
    ORGANIZATION
    Placards are
    GREEN and
    issued to organi-
    zations that trans-
    port persons with
    disabilities. The
    placard expires in
    April 2014.
    The Office of the Secretary of State issues Persons with Disabilities license plates and parking plac-
    ards to those who qualify under the Illinois Vehicle Codeʼs definition for persons with disabilities and
    the Illinois Identification Card Act.
    APPLICATION
    To receive Persons with Disabilities license plates or a parking placard, an application must be com-
    pleted by the applicant and his/her physician. A licensed physician must certify on the application that
    the applicant has one of the qualifying disabilities. The application also must include the applicantʼs
    date of birth, gender and driverʼs license or state ID card number.
    Applications are available from your local Driver Services facility or by contacting: Persons with
    Disabilities License Plates/Placard Unit, 501 S. Second St., Rm. 541, Springfield, IL 62756.
    Applications also are available at www.cyberdriveillinois.com.
    PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES LICENSE PLATES
    Persons with permanent disabilities may obtain disability plates for vehicles titled in their name. An
    immediate family member residing in the same household may obtain one set of plates if the qualify-
    ing person with disabilities does not own a vehicle and must rely on someone else for transportation.
    If a person does not meet the above criteria, he/she is only eligible for a permanent parking placard.
    Corporations, school districts and special education cooperatives that trans-
    port persons with disabilities also are eligible for disability plates; however, if
    the corporation transports passengers for compensation, the plates are not
    allowed.
    PARKING PLACARDS
    The Secretary of Stateʼs office also issues parking placards free to persons with disabilities. There are
    three different types of placards (see below).
