(WAND) - Seven DMVs across Illinois will open next week for drive through services for vehicle registration sticker transactions only.

Starting Tuesday, May 19, facilities in Springfield-Dirksen, Tilton, Chicago North, Chicago South, Chicago West, Rockford-Central, and Macomb will open.

All employees will wear face masks. Customers are encouraged to do the same.

Hours of operation at Chicago North, Chicago South and Chicago West will be Monday 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday through Friday 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cash will not be accepted.

Hours of operation at Rockford-Central, Macomb and Tilton will be Tuesday 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Wednesday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 7:30 a.m. to noon.
