Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (625 ILCS 5/6-105) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 6-105)
    Sec. 6-105. Instruction permits and temporary licenses for persons 18 years of age or older.
    (a) Except as provided in this Section, the Secretary of State upon receiving proper application and payment of the required fee may issue an instruction permit to any person 18 years of age or older who is not ineligible for a license under paragraphs 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, or 8 of Section 6-103, after the applicant has successfully passed such examination as the Secretary of State in his discretion may prescribe.
    1. An instruction permit entitles the holder while having the permit in his immediate possession to drive a motor vehicle, excluding a motor driven cycle or motorcycle, upon the highways for a period of 12 months after the date of its issuance when accompanied by a licensed driver who is 21 years of age or older, who has had a valid driver's license classification to operate such vehicle for at least one year and has had one year of driving experience with such classification and who is occupying a seat beside the driver.
    2. A 12 month instruction permit for a motor driven cycle or motorcycle may be issued to a person 18 years of age or more, and entitles the holder to drive upon the highways during daylight under the direct supervision of a licensed motor driven cycle operator or motorcycle operator with the same or greater classification, who is 21 years of age or older and who has at least one year of driving experience.
    3. (Blank).
    (b) (Blank).
    (c) The Secretary of State may issue a temporary driver's license to an applicant for a license permitting the operation of a motor vehicle while the Secretary is completing an investigation and determination of all facts relative to such applicant's eligibility to receive such license, or for any other reason prescribed by rule or regulation promulgated by the Secretary of State. Such permit must be in the applicant's immediate possession while operating a motor vehicle, and it shall be invalid when the applicant's driver's license has been issued or for good cause has been refused. In each case the Secretary of State may issue the temporary driver's license for such period as appropriate but in no event for longer than 90 days. The Secretary may issue such additional temporary driver's licenses to an applicant as are necessary to allow the applicant to drive during the pendency of the investigation, valid for such a period as is appropriate, but in no event for longer than 90 days each.
