Super Seniors event set for April 13 to offer driver’s license renewal in Yorkville

Published: Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017 5:30 a.m. CDT

Senior Services Associates will be hosting a Super Seniors Event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 13. 

This 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 Review 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. An identification card can be obtained for $20; however, if you are age 65 and older you may obtain a free, non-expiring state of Illinois photo ID card.

Drivers age 75 and older are required to take a driving test to renew their driver’s licenses; therefore they must visit a Driver Service Facility.

The Rules of the Road Review Course will take place from 10 to 11:30 a.m. This course is designed to give drivers – especially seniors and persons with disabilities – the knowledge and confidence needed to renew or obtain a driver’s license. The review course combines an explanation of the driving exam with a practice written exam.

Anyone interested in attending the event needs to register by calling Senior Services Associates at 630-553-5777.
