E-check Fees Waived to Renew Driver’s License, State ID, Vehicle Registration

In an effort to further encourage online transactions with the Secretary of State’s office at www.cyberdriveillinois.com, The Secretary of State and State Treasurer have worked to waive the payment processor fee associated with e-checks through August 2, 2020. They have successfully partnered with National Cash Register (NCR) – the Treasurer’s approved payment processor company – to remove the e-check payment processing fee for three months. 

This e-Check payment processor fee will be waived for the following online services: 

  • renewing a vehicle registration; 
  • obtaining a duplicate driver’s license or ID card; and 
  • renewing a driver’s license with the Safe Driver Renewal program. 

By renewing your vehicle registration or your driver’s license or ID card by e-check through August 2, you won’t have to visit a Driver Services facility once they reopen and the payment processor fee will be waived. This will save money and time.

Paying with an e-check is simple. Customers first visit www.cyberdriveillinois.com to begin their transaction – either renewing a vehicle registration or a driver’s license or obtaining a duplicate driver’s license/ID card. Then they are automatically connected to NCR where they provide their routing number and bank account number on the secure payment page. After the transaction is completed and the e-check is verified, the Secretary of State’s office will begin the process of mailing the vehicle registration sticker or DL/ID card. 

Even though the time to renew has been extended to at least 90 days after Driver Services facilities reopen for vehicle registrations, driver’s licenses and ID cards, customers are strongly encouraged to renew online if they are able to do so.
