Vehicle Licenses

All vehicles owned by Oak Park residents must obtain a current vehicle license. Vehicles leased or owned by businesses but stored in Oak Park overnight and on weekends must have a vehicle license as well. Vehicle licenses must be renewed annually. Renewal applications are mailed in May to residents who previously registered vehicles in Oak Park. Residents who receive a renewal application may renew or purchase online, by mail or in person at Village Hall.

Beginning with the 2019/2020 season, vehicle licenses will be issued through a new automated system that allows parking enforcement officers to use electronic license plate recognition technology to scan a plate and know if the owner is in compliance with the local vehicle registration law.  There will be no sticker to apply to your vehicle’s windshield.
