Super Seniors is a convenient and voluntary program for driver's license renewal, which includes Rules of the Road classroom instruction, and a vision screening exam. The Rules of the Road Course also includes a review of safe driving techniques, and Illinois driving laws.

A Secretary of State Mobile Driver Services Unit will be available for participants to renew their driver's licenses, register and renew vehicles and license plates, change of address, organ donor status, and several other services that you might need.
