The Chicago City Clerk’s office will sell City Vehicle Stickers at my 49th Ward Service Office, 7356 N. Greenview, on Saturday, June 25, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There is no additional fee for this convenience.
As you know, City Vehicle Sticker sales have transitioned to a year-round calendar. Please note that you can purchase a city sticker at this event only if your city sticker expires in June or July. Senior citizens age 65 and older as of Dec. 31, 2014, are exempt from the year-round sales program and will continue to renew on an annual, June-to-June schedule. The cost for a senior Chicago City Vehicle Sticker is $30.34.
Starting July 1, there will no longer be a two-week grace period for the purchase and display of vehicle stickers. Motorists will be eligible to be ticketed immediately following their vehicle sticker’s expiration. Failure to purchase and display the new City Vehicle Sticker by the expiration date could result in a $200 ticket and a purchasing late fee.
The price of a City Vehicle Sticker depends on the type of vehicle you own. Passenger, large passenger, small truck, large truck, motorcycle, and antique Chicago City Vehicle Stickers are assigned varying prices. The Chicago City Clerk’s office provides a chart with a list of prices of city stickers for vehicles by weight. Click on “Vehicle Sticker Type Prices.”
A vehicle sticker in residential permit parking Zone 56 will cost an additional $25.
Please bring your City Vehicle Sticker renewal form. If you do not have your renewal form, you must bring one of the following VIN approved documents:
• State vehicle registration card, or
• Vehicle title, or
• Insurance card displaying your VIN.
If you are a senior citizen, make sure to bring your driver’s license to receive the senior discount. If you are purchasing a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker on behalf of a senior citizen, please bring that person’s driver’s license.
The Clerk’s Office will only accept checks, money orders and credit cards. NO cash payments will be accepted.
Keep in mind that even if your vehicle is registered in the suburbs or out-of-state, you may need to purchase a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker.
As a final inducement to purchasing your city sticker on time, my office staff and I will be handing out free lemonade to everyone who buys a sticker at my office Saturday!
