All info you need is here: http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/drivers/drivers_license/acceptable_id.html

Don't know which city you're in, but go to DMV and get the driver's manual - you WILL be tested on the sample questions in the book.

You'll need a Green Card, which I believe you have with the visa you used to enter the US. You should get your SSN.

You will have to pass a simple vision test. Pay a slight fee.

Then you have to pass a written test.

Go to the Illinois DMV website and download and thoroughly study the Rules of the Road. There are sample questions at the end of each chapter; those are typical of the test questions. The test is heavy on signs; know the shapes, colors and the basic signs.

Then you have to arrive at the test facility with a fully insured, properly operational vehicle. You and the driving test instructor will first go over basic operation of the vehicle, verify all lights work properly and then the instructor will tell you to drive onto a prescribed route around, usually, a nearby residential neighborhood.

One trick is to arrive at the facility ealry one other day and stealthily follow another testee and their testor out to predetermine the route taken so you can practice driving that.

Hi,

I took the both the written and driving test in one day. just read the rules of the road, then all will be easy. i chose to go to a not so busy DMV office (hence the written exam, not a computerized one) so as to have a driving exam in a not so busy area and it helped.

you will have to wait until you have the IDs that fall under the 3 categories though. so while you are waiting for them, familiarize yourself with the road signs for now while you're driving (if you have your country's license that you can use).

hi again.

I am not aware as to the passing rate of the written exam however in case you haven't gotten a copy yet of the review course workbook, go visit this link:

http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/publications/pdf_publications/dsd_ds9.pdf

As to the number of questions, as stated on the PDF,

WRITTEN EXAM

The written exam consists of 35 questions, 15 of which will address traffic sign identification and the

remaining 20 will either be multiple choice or true/false questions.

Just practice on those questions and you'll have your license in no time. Good luck! :)
