Illinois Secretary of State’s Office employees hard at work serving seniors at SeatGeek Stadium.

The Village of Bridgeview has been providing the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office with a venue serving as a temporary “Senior Only” driver’s license services walk-in center since the beginning of October, 2023. Seniors utilizing this “Senior Only” walk-in center operating in a portion of SeatGeek Stadium do not need appointments, and the facility provides standard DMV services, such as renewing Driver’s Licenses, conducting driving tests, and providing Real IDs.

The walk-in center at the Stadium serves about 250 Illinoisans a day and about 5,000 a month, meaning that about 15,000 Chicagoland community members will have been served by the time that the walk-in center at the Stadium moves out on December 29th.

Bridgeview Mayor Steven Landek shared his thoughts on the successful program. “I’m grateful that the Village of Bridgeview has been able to serve the residents of so many Chicagoland communities over the past few months. The goal was to make life easier for seniors in need of driver’s license services, and it’s been great to see the huge success of the program at Bridgeview’s Stadium.”

The “Senior Only” walk-in center will be leaving SeatGeek Stadium on December 29th as the Secretary of State’s Office explores a permanent space for the facility. The DMV services will be moving due to the Stadium’s core tenants, the Chicago Red Stars, the Chicago Hounds, and the Chicago Fire, ramping up their pre-season activity. The Village of Bridgeview Trustees and Mayor Landek appreciate the opportunity to better serve Bridgeview residents and the residents of surrounding municipalities.
