The state of Illinois requires a social security number in order to apply for a driver’s license.  If you do not have such a number, you may apply for a Temporary Visitor’s Driver’s License.

It is highly recommended that you obtain an Illinois driver’s license, even if you have a valid one from your home country or from another state. For information about the Temporary Visitor’s Driver’s License (pdf), please download the information sheet.
