The Secretary of State’s office has opened three Commercial Drivers License (CDL) facilities to meet the overwhelming demand being placed on commercial and agricultural enterprises engaged in delivering and producing essential goods. Commercial truck drivers provide valuable and essential services by ensuring that goods can be transported safely and efficiently throughout our state and country during this difficult time. We appreciate the work truck drivers do and thank the trucking industry for their ongoing efforts to serve the public. The opening of these three facilities aims to help ensure we have an adequate supply of safe and responsible truck drivers while also doing everything we can to help protect the health and safety of the applicants and employees.
CDL driving tests are by appointment only, and can be made by calling 217-785-3013. All other CDL transactions will be first-come, first-served.
The facility closest to the 42nd District is in West Chicago:
