License Plate Renewal

Illinois residents will be able to renew and leave with their license plate sticker the same day.

To renew your sticker, you will need to bring:

  • Your Illinois vehicle registration renewal notice OR Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and plate number, and
  • Your driver’s license

The library will not be able to renew your license plate sticker if your vehicle needs to pass an emission test, so please make sure you are ready.

A standard renewal sticker costs $151, a renewal sticker for a personalized plate costs $158, and a renewal sticker for a vanity plate costs $164. Like local check-cashing businesses, there will be an additional $9.50 processing fee. You can pay with cash, debit, or credit card.

The license plate sticker renewal service is available during regular library hours.
