State Senator Seth Lewis (R-Bartlett) joined Illinois Secretary of State Alexi Giannoulias and other public officials on Tuesday for the official opening and ribbon cutting for the new Secretary of State’s Road Testing Center in Addison.
Located at the Addison Township Office at 50 E. Oak Street, the facility will focus on serving Illinoisans who need to take a behind-the-wheel driving test to obtain or renew a driver’s license. Other basic driver services will also be offered, such as driver’s license and sticker renewals.
“This road testing facility is a wonderful addition to this region and it will provide a much-needed service for those who live and work in this area,” said Lewis. “Motorists will now have easy access to a test that is required for many drivers, especially seniors.”
According to Lewis, the Secretary of State’s Office has been working to improve service delivery following the COVID-19 health pandemic. Steps to improve customer service include the “Skip the Line” appointment system for most driver services, the implementation of a designated senior-only appointment phone line, and senior-only walk-in centers in Evanston, Bridgeview, and Westchester.
“In Addison Township, we are honored that our township office was chosen as the site for this new facility,” said Addison Township Supervisor Dennis Reboletti. “When people come in to take advantage of this new Secretary of State facility, I would invite them to visit the township office to learn about the various services and assistance we provide at the township level.”
