BENTON – The Benton Driver Services facility is temporarily closed due to a malfunctioning air conditioner unit. The facility is scheduled to reopen June 22.
Officials said customers are encouraged to visit the Marion or McLeansboro facilities until it’s reopening.
Additionally, officials reminded residents that Secretary of State Jesse White’s extension of all driver’s license and ID card expiration dates to Aug. 1, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s extension of the federal REAL ID deadline to May 3, 2023.
White has expanded online services and encouraged the public to visit his office’s website, where several transactions can be conducted online including the purchase of license plate stickers, obtaining a duplicate driver’s license/ID card, and renewing a standard driver’s license or ID card for those who are eligible.
