No one can guarantee how quickly or slowly things will move at the SOS, but in general Fridays are more crowded than other days, and afternoons are more crowded than mornings. 

It is strongly recommended that anyone who needs to visit a Secretary of State facility should make an appointment in advance at the SOS’s scheduling site. Permit-test or road-test appointments should be scheduled with time to spare. 

The Secretary of State’s Facility Finder lists all SOS-location addresses in Illinois, along with their hours of operation, phone numbers, and other useful information.
