Is it legal in Il. for a car dealer to sell, then permit someone to drive away without presenting a valid drivers licence?

Here's the IL motor vehicle laws. I don't have time to go through it. Chapter 5, Article I addresses dealers and Chapter 6 is the driver license law.

If it doesn't say it's illegal in there, then it's legal.

It's illegal to drive without a valid license, but I wouldn't expect it is a dealer's responsibility to ensure that purchaser's possess one. Why would you think it might be?

Yes. It’s not the dealer’s responsibility to ensure the buyer has a driver’s license. It is the responsibility of the driver to have the necessary license to drive.
