Illinois stops mailing out vehicle renewal reminders
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.
