Every resident is required to purchase a license for each owned or leased motor vehicle before July 15. The rate increases by $20 after the deadline. Failure to purchase a license also could result in a $78 ticket. A current vehicle license is needed to purchase a parking permit. Vehicle license rates vary by type of vehicle. Persons age 65 and older, and anyone who has a state-issued handicapped license plate or placard, can apply for a discount. Disabled and active-duty veterans with the proper documentation can apply for free vehicle licenses. Purchase and renew online at www.oak-park.us/vehiclelicense.
