SECTION 1030.89 TEMPORARY DRIVER'S LICENSES AND TEMPORARY INSTRUCTION PERMITS
Section 1030.89 Temporary Driver's Licenses and Temporary Instruction Permits
a) The Department shall issue a temporary driver's license or
instruction permit to an applicant who is not otherwise ineligible for a
driver's license or instruction permit if the Driver Services Facility representative
is unable to produce a driver's license or instruction permit due to an
equipment failure or the facility lacks the equipment needed to produce a
driver's license or instruction permit, or if a required drive test at the time
of renewal cannot be completed due to adverse road conditions that would make
administration of the examination more difficult or unsafe, as determined by
the facility manager. A temporary driver's license is also issued by a Driver
Services Facility representative if the applicant does not wish a photo to be
taken at the time the license is obtained or renewed due to facial
disfigurement, or if the applicant is waiting for a non-photo driver's license
application to be processed.
b) Temporary License or Permit upon Application by Driver
1) Persons who submit an application as required by IVC Section 6-106 and a fee as required by IVC Section 6-118(a) to the Driver Services Department of the Office of Secretary of State, 2701 South Dirksen Parkway, Springfield, Illinois 62723, and are not otherwise ineligible for a driver's license or instruction permit under the provisions of IVC Section 6-103, shall be issued a temporary driver's license or instruction permit if the applicant:
A) loses a valid Illinois driver's license while out-of-state;
B) is temporarily out-of-state and unable to return to Illinois to renew the driver's license;
C) surrendered a valid Illinois driver's license in compliance with a terminated suspension notice and has a revocation or second or subsequent suspension pending; or
D) has a pending suspension or revocation of driving privileges that will be effective in 60 days or less and wishes to renew driving privileges prior to the effective date of the suspension or revocation.
2) The applicant shall be issued a temporary driver's license or instruction permit that is valid for up to 90 days. No extension past the expiration date shall be allowed. If the applicant has not returned to Illinois by the date of expiration of the temporary driver's license, arrangements must be made for the applicant to take the necessary test or tests at an out-of-state facility.
3) A temporary driver's license or temporary instruction permit shall not be issued pursuant to this Section to a TVDL or temporary visitor instruction permit holder or applicant.
c) All applicants who receive a temporary driver's license or instruction permit in lieu of a driver's license or instruction permit must show proof of legal name, a valid social security number, zip code, date of birth, gender and residence address as described in IVC Section 6-106. The applicant shall affirm that all information set forth on the application is true and correct and bears the applicant's signature.
d) Temporary driver's licenses or instruction permits shall be issued for a period of time not to exceed 90 days and shall be valid only when in the possession of the driver.
e) A temporary driver's license or instruction permit shall be invalid after the person receives his/her driver's license, has been refused a driver's license or has had driving privileges suspended, revoked or canceled.
f) A temporary driver's license or instruction permit, issued pursuant to this Section, shall not be valid for identification purposes and shall so state on the license or permit itself.
g) The temporary driver's license or instruction permit, issued pursuant to this Section, shall be issued only for the time period that the temporary license or instruction permit is actually needed, but shall not be issued for more than 90 days.
