Vehicle Stickers

Purchase a Vehicle Sticker

All residents of the Village who own or lease a licensed motor vehicle registered with the State of Illinois, even if the vehicle is not operated, housed or stored within the Village, are required to pay an annual vehicle license fee. The Secretary of State’s office is the source used by the Village for vehicle information. New residents should register vehicles within 30 days of moving to Western Springs. Vehicle stickers are also required for all motorized vehicles. Renewal notices are mailed each year in March and expire April 30.

Vehicles without current vehicle stickers may be subject to ticketing by the Police Department. 

Once your vehicle information has been received in the mail, residents are strongly encouraged to purchase stickers online. You can also complete the fillable PDF forms (for vehicle stickers and pet licenses ) print, and return them with payment to Village Hall, after which stickers will be mailed. Mail completed forms with payment to, or use the drop box at: Village Hall, 740 Hillgrove Avenue, Western Springs, 60558.

If you have questions or require assistance, please call 708-246-1800.


Note: New residents, or those with new vehicles should not purchase vehicle stickers online after May 1. It is advised to print and mail the form with payment in these cases, or call Village Hall directly, to avoid being charged a late fee.
