Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White will send his office’s mobile services to NIU seven times this academic year.

Members of the NIU community, including students, faculty, staff and local residents can renew, replace or correct driver’s licenses or state IDs, purchase annual vehicle license plate stickers, register for organ and tissue donation and conduct other transactions.

Services are available from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Sept. 15, in the lower level of the Holmes Student Center. Other dates are Oct. 20, Nov. 17, Jan. 19, Feb. 16, March 16 and April 20. Acceptable forms of payment include personal checks, cash, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit and debit cards.

“This is the fourth year of this partnership between the Secretary of State’s Office and Northern Illinois University,” White said. “This is a great example of how my office can work with public and private universities to make these transactions more convenient.”

Motorists wishing to renew their driver’s licenses can do so up to one year in advance of their licenses’ expiration dates. Proper identification is required for new and duplicate driver’s licenses and state ID cards. A complete list of acceptable forms of identification is available at

Customers also can purchase license plates for passenger vehicles, motorcycles and B-Trucks and obtain vehicle title and registration and parking placards for people with disabilities.
