The pilot phase of the new Temporary Visitor Driver License (or TVDL) has opened in the State of Illinois. Due to unexpected high volume and demand, the Secretary of State is taking appointments no earlier than in March 2014 and later. Many more locations will be added mid-December 2013, however this does not guarantee you will get a spot sooner.
Specifics can be found on the Illinois Secretary of State web site, or by clicking here. Applications and testing can be done in one of five languages: Chinese, English, Korean, Polish and Spanish.
There are many people out there who are trying to exploit individuals desperate to be a part of this program by claiming to offer assistance in many forms, especially via $50 packets of “information”. It is important to note that ALL of the study materials for testing can be found for FREE at one of many Secretary of State locations. For a complete list of locations of where to get these materials, please click here.
You need to be aware that here is much more to the application process than the guidelines provide. Not everyone can just show up with the required documentation. Not everyone who is “eligible” should apply as there are loopholes that might be detrimental to some applicants and which may lead to criminal charges being filed.
It is important that you contact an experienced attorney who can review and discuss your eligibility with you before making an appointment. If you wish to discuss your eligibility with Attorney Tatiana D. Czaplicki – please call 312.672.9628 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a free consultation.
