 8    resident  of  the  State of Illinois, may file an application
 9    for an identification card or for the renewal thereof,  in  a
10    manner   prescribed   by   the   Secretary.    Each  original

28        Section 10.  The Illinois  Vehicle  Code  is  amended  by
29    changing Sections 6-106 and 6-117 as follows:
                            -2-                LRB9212608DHgc
 1        (625 ILCS 5/6-106) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 6-106)
 2        Sec.   6-106.  Application  for  license  or  instruction
 3    permit.
 4        (a)  Every  application  for  any   permit   or   license
 5    authorized  to  be issued under this Act shall be made upon a
 6    form furnished by the Secretary of State.  Every  application
 7    shall  be  accompanied  by the proper fee and payment of such
 8    fee shall entitle the applicant to not more than  3  attempts
 9    to  pass  the examination within a period of 1 year after the
10    date of application.
11        (b)  Every  application  shall  state  the  name,  social
12    security number, zip code, date of birth, sex, and  residence
13    address  of  the  applicant;  briefly describe the applicant;
14    state whether the applicant has theretofore been licensed  as
15    a  driver, and, if so, when and by what state or country, and
16    whether any such license has ever been cancelled,  suspended,
17    revoked  or refused, and, if so, the date and reason for such
18    cancellation,  suspension,  revocation  or   refusal;   shall
19    include  an affirmation by the applicant that all information
20    set forth is true and correct; and shall bear the applicant's
21    signature.   The  application  form  may  also  require   the
22    statement  of  such  additional  relevant  information as the
23    Secretary of State shall  deem  necessary  to  determine  the
24    applicant's  competency  and  eligibility.  The  Secretary of
25    State may in his discretion substitute a federal  tax  number
26    in lieu of a social security number, or he may instead assign
27    an  additional  distinctive  number in lieu thereof, where an
28    applicant is prohibited by bona  fide  religious  convictions
29    from  applying  or  is  exempt  from  applying  for  a social
30    security number.  The  Secretary  of  State  shall,  however,
31    determine which religious orders or sects have such bona fide
32    religious  convictions.  The  Secretary  of State may, in his
33    discretion,  by  rule  or   regulation,   provide   that   an
34    application  for  a  drivers  license or permit may include a
                            -3-                LRB9212608DHgc
 1    suitable photograph of the applicant in the  form  prescribed
 2    by  the  Secretary,  and  he  may  further  provide that each
 3    drivers license shall include a photograph of the driver. The
 4    Secretary of State may utilize a photograph process or system
 5    most suitable to deter alteration or improper reproduction of
 6    a drivers license and  to  prevent  substitution  of  another
 7    photo  thereon.  The  Secretary  must provide by rule that an
 8    applicant  may  be  voluntarily  fingerprinted  and  that  an
 9    application may  include  a  legible  print  of  a  thumb  or
10    forefinger of the applicant.  The Secretary must also provide
11    by  rule  that a driver's license must  provide a space for a
12    fingerprint or thumbprint of the applicant.
13        (c)  The application form shall include a notice  to  the
14    applicant  of  the  registration obligations of sex offenders
15    under the Sex Offender Registration Act.  The notice shall be
16    provided in a form and manner prescribed by the Secretary  of
17    State.   For  purposes of this subsection (c), "sex offender"
18    has the meaning ascribed to  it  in  Section  2  of  the  Sex
19    Offender Registration Act.
20        (d)  Any  male  United  States  citizen  or immigrant who
21    applies for any permit or license  authorized  to  be  issued
22    under this Act or for a renewal of any permit or license, and
23    who  is  at  least  18 years of age but less than 26 years of
24    age, must be registered in compliance with  the  requirements
25    of  the federal Military Selective Service Act. The Secretary
26    of State must forward in an electronic format  the  necessary
27    personal  information  regarding the applicants identified in
28    this subsection (d) to  the  Selective  Service  System.  The
29    applicant's   signature  on  the  application  serves  as  an
30    indication that the applicant either has  already  registered
31    with  the  Selective Service System or that he is authorizing
32    the Secretary to forward to the Selective Service System  the
33    necessary  information  for  registration. The Secretary must
34    notify the applicant at the  time  of  application  that  his
                            -4-                LRB9212608DHgc
 1    signature   constitutes  consent  to  registration  with  the
 2    Selective Service System, if he is not already registered.

 5        Sec. 6-117.  Records to  be  kept  by  the  Secretary  of
 6    State.
 7        (a)  The  Secretary of State shall file every application
 8    for a license or permit  accepted  under  this  Chapter,  and

15    driving  privileges  of  persons  not  licensed  under   this
16    Chapter,  and  such  records  shall note the reasons for such
17    action.
18        (c)  The Secretary of State  shall  maintain  appropriate

21    medium.

23    records of any accident reports received.
24        (e)  The   Secretary   of   State   shall  also  maintain
25    appropriate records of  any  disposition  of  supervision  or
26    records  relative to a driver's referral to a driver remedial
27    or rehabilitative program, as required by  the  Secretary  of
28    State  or  the  courts.  Such records shall only be available
29    for use by  the  Secretary,  law  enforcement  agencies,  the
30    courts, and the affected driver or, upon proper verification,
31    such affected driver's attorney.
32        (f)  The  Secretary  of  State  shall  also  maintain  or
33    contract  to maintain appropriate records of all photographs,
                            -5-                LRB9212608DHgc

 3    The  record  shall be confidential and shall not be disclosed
 4    except to those entities listed under Section 6-110.1 of this
 5    Code.
