A new law allows motorists to drive without an up-to-date vehicle registration sticker, provided the motorist can show a receipt from the Secretary of State showing they’ve purchased a new sticker online before expiration.
Public Act 98-1103 establishes an exemption good for 30 days. Senate Bill 2802 filed Jan. 30, 2014, by Sen. Patricia Van Pelt (D-Chicago).
The bill passed the Senate 52-0 on March 4, 2014. Amended version passed the House 111-0 on May 19, 2014.
The Senate concurred 56-0 on May 29, 2014. Signed into law Aug. 26, 2014, by Gov. Pat Quinn.
“Our Driver Services facilities have many customers come in to buy their stickers a day or two before they are set to expire,” explained Secretary of State Jesse White, who proposed the legislation. “This new law will allow such customers to make the same purchase online, and then use the receipt as proof of up-to-date registration compliance.”
Last year, more than 150,000 customers purchased vehicle renewal registration stickers during the last two days in May. The vast majority of customers visited a facility to conduct these transactions; just over 6,300 people purchased their renewal stickers online.
