Don’t Get A Ticket For An Expired License Plate

Published by Scott Hershman

2017 will be the second consecutive year that renewal notices will not be mailed. Maybe you are aware of this, or maybe you are part of the many Illinois residents who are not. Back In September 2015, the Secretary of State reminded drivers that they would no longer get renewal notices in the mail for their expiring license plates. Following the suspended letters, renewals were down 15 percent in November 2015, and 23 percent in December 2015 according to ABC7 Chicago. A ticket for an expired license plate can cost you a minimum of $100.00.

How To Avoid Getting A Ticket

To avoid getting a ticket, we advise that you set reminders for yourself in your digital or written calendar. Set the date for your reminder a few weeks before the expiration and also a second reminder a few days before. Plan to get your sticker a few weeks before it expires, just in case something comes up. When the time comes for your renewal, skip the line at the Secretary of State Office and get your renewal sticker instantly at WSCE.
