Illinois DMV Locations

For those new to Illinois, you won’t find an “Illinois DMV” to handle your vehicle and license needs. Instead, you will be dealing with the Illinois Secretary of State – which covers the same services that most states handle within their Department of Motor Vehicles. You can find your nearest Illinois SOS office using our map below. SOS hours can vary from location to locations, so you may want to call in advance to confirm operating hours before making the trip.  

Should you find any information that’s out of date please contact us and we will update the map accordingly. 

If for some reason the map is not working for you or if you prefer to have a text search feature, we have also included this simple table listing of all Illinois DMV locations.  This table lists the exact same information in the map but in a more searchable format.
