Antique Vehicles & No-Fee Sticker Programs

These special discount programs are only available at Office of the City Clerk locations. Please contact us at 312-74C-LERK (312-742-5375) for more details.

Antique Vehicle Emblem

An Antique Vehicle, or show vehicle, is an automobile that is 25 years or older and used exclusively for shows or exhibitions. To qualify for an Antique Vehicle (AV) emblem, the vehicle must have an Illinois antique motor vehicle (AV) license plate. However, antique vehicles used for everyday, non-exhibition purposes do not qualify for this discount and should display a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker, purchased at regular price. Vehicles with the Antique Vehicle emblem cannot park on any City streets without the risk of being ticketed for non-compliance with the Chicago Wheel Tax.

No-Fee Disability Sticker

As a continuing service to our disabled constituents and in accordance with City Ordinance, the Chicago City Clerk offers a No-Fee City Vehicle Sticker to persons with a qualifying disability.

The Annual Residential Zone Parking feature may be added at no additional cost for those living in a Residential Parking Zone.

Please download the Disability City Vehicle Sticker form to see eligibility requirements and to apply.

Mail or deliver all contents of the application to:
