The Carol Stream Municipal Code requires the license, purchase and display of Village issued vehicle stickers by any person or entity residing in, or conducting business within the Village who owns or leases a vehicle (any motor vehicle or motorcycle) registered with the Illinois Secretary of State to a Village address.

New residents and new vehicle owners have 60 days from the date of residency change or vehicle acquisition to purchase and display a Village issued vehicle sticker on the respective vehicle(s). Residents must provide documentation of the date of new residency or vehicle acquisition to avoid late fees. The Village will honor a new resident’s vehicle sticker from their former community through its expiration date, however not longer than one year from the date of residency.

Beginning May 1, 2017, vehicle stickers are valid for a period of two years. The vehicle sticker renewal process occurs between May 1st and June 30th of every odd numbered year. A vehicle sticker renewal application will be mailed to all addresses having a registered vehicle on file on or about May 1st of odd numbered years. Vehicles can be registered and issued a vehicle sticker in person at the Village Hall, by mail, by Village payment drop box, online, or at local Carol Stream currency exchanges. See fee schedule below.

Any resident or business who fails to purchase and display a valid vehicle sticker for their vehicle by June 30th of every odd numbered year or within 60 days of residency change or new vehicle acquisition, will be subject to late fees and citations.

Important: Failure to receive a license renewal application does not exclude late applicants from late fees or associated fines.
