Vehicle Licenses

Vehicle license deadline extended

The deadline for renewing Village vehicle licenses has been extended until Sept. 14, 2020 due to the COVID-19 coronavirus emergency. Licenses were due to expire July 14.

While there is no rush, anyone with an online account who wants to get ahead of the curve can purchase a 2020-21 vehicle license at For those who don't have an online account, renewal notices will be arriving by mail in July.


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.

Vehicle licenses are issued through an 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.
