Reduced Term City Sticker
The Office of the City Clerk reintroduced the Reduced Term City Sticker, originally introduced in October 2019, to provide residents with more flexibility when purchasing a City Sticker. The new policy allows residents to purchase the required City Sticker in smaller installments - 4 months at a time for $30.30.
The Reduced Term Sticker expires on the last day of the expiration month printed on the sticker. The Reduced Term City Sticker will run through July 31, 2022.
HOW IT WORKS
Residents who choose to purchase a Reduced Term Sticker receive a courtesy renewal notice 45 days prior to the expiration of their current sticker.
At the time of expiration, individuals who purchased the Reduced Term Sticker can buy another Reduced Term Sticker or renew at the yearly or two-year sticker option.
They can either come back into a City Clerk location or renew their sticker online at www.ezbuy.chicityclerk.com
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.
This discount is only offered at Chicago City Clerk locations.
**Due to COVID-19, we will temporarily accept stickers for Antique vehicles by mail.
