Reminder: Don't Get Pulled Over

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced in September that in the absence of a state budget his office would suspend mailing out vehicle registration renewal reminders to the public.

In order to receive a reminder, you must sign-up to receive an email notice through the Secretary of State’s web site here. You will need your Registration ID and PIN number found on your current registration card. If you do not have your current registration card, please call the Public Inquiry Division at 800-252-8980 to obtain your Registration ID and PIN number.

When making the announcement, White noted that suspending this service would save approximately $450,000 per month, and allow his office to prolong the mailing of vehicle registration renewal stickers, titles, and license plates to vehicle owners. 

While those who receive emailed vehicle registration renewal notices will continue to have access to a pin number needed to renew their sticker on-line, those who do not sign-up for the electronic alerts will now have to renew their vehicle stickers in person at a Secretary of State office.
