Affidavit of Surviving Spouse
When one spouse dies, the surviving spouse needs to remove the deceased spouse’s name from property titles within 120 days in order to transfer full ownership. An affidavit of a surviving spouse will correct titles by removing the deceased spouse’s name and replacing it with the surviving spouse. You can handle this process using an Application for Vehicle Transaction (s) (VSD 190). There is a $15 fee for the corrected title.
NOTE: You’ll need to surrender the original vehicle title (when jointly owned). Otherwise, you’re responsible for a $50 title fee and a $3 corrected registration fee.

Disabled Driver Forms
Physician Certification for Blind or Disabled Person (Non-Driver ID Application)
Physical impairment sometimes makes it impossible for individuals to operate a motor vehicle. That means a commonly used Illinois driver’s license will not work for general identification purposes.
Through the Illinois IL SOS, non-drivers may obtain a state-issued ID by filing an Application for an Illinois Person with a Disability Identification Card (Form DSD X 164) with an accompanying doctor’s diagnosis and statement. The report is valid for 3 months. There is no fee for your ID card once approved.
Please note, the Disabled Person ID does not enable the holder to use designated handicapped parking spaces, or obtain a wheelchair plate or placard for persons with disabilities.
If you happen to need a replacement placard, you can submit an Application for Replacement Disability Parking Placard (Form VSD 415).
Wheelchair Symbol Plate/Placard Application
Motorists who have disabilities and need a wheelchair plate or a placard can file a Persons with Disabilities Certification for Parking Placard/License Plates (Form VSD 62). Submit the form to the Illinois SOS to obtain a parking placard. Importantly, the Illinois placard is free of charge.
