BLOOMINGTON - A different kind of license is making its way out of some Illinois DMV facilities.
Governor Pat Quinn signed a bill making temporary driver's licenses available for illegal immigrants in January. State officials have been working to prepare the newer licenses ever since.
They will have a purple background and will be good for three years instead of four. In order to get one of these licenses, applicants must schedule an appointment, have established residence for one year, and then pass written, vision and driving tests.
