Illinois Secretary of State stops sending out License Plate Renewals

According to WGN9 News, the Illinois Secretary of State has stopped sending out license plate renewal forms, due to the state budget impasse.

WGN says:

CHICAGO — The Illinois Secretary of State’s office has suspended mailing out notices that your vehicle registration is expiring.

The move is blamed on the state’s budget impasse.

A spokesperson said it will save the state $450,000 a month.

Hundreds of thousands of Illinois license plates expired at midnight Dec. 1 – but many vehicle owners likely did not receive a notice in the mail.

E-mail notices are not affected.

Drivers can check when their registration expires on the secretary of state’s website at: cyberdriveillinois.com.

New stickers can be ordered online or at any state driver’s license facility.
