Skokie residents will receive vehicle sticker renewal notices by mail in late May 2021. The renewal period begins June 1 and runs through July 31. The cost for passenger vehicles is $40, with additional fees for trucks and trailers. Payment methods include check and most major credit cards. All vehicle license stickers must be displayed on vehicles by August 1.
Prices for all stickers increase by 50 percent on August 1, 2021. The 2021/2022 vehicle sticker will feature the Village’s Clean, Green Skokie! logo to encourage everyone not to litter and to do their part to keep Skokie clean and beautiful. Here’s how to purchase a 2021 vehicle sticker beginning on June 1 as well as a few other notes on the process:
- Online at www.skokiestickers.org. (Note: this address is not activated until June 1!)This is the most convenient way to renew since the Village does not charge credit card processing fees or shipping fees. The portal opens on June 1.
- By mail. Envelopes are provided with the application forms and are processed beginning on June 1.
- Residents should avoid visiting Village Hall and renew by mail or online. Vehicle stickers purchased by mail and online are typically received within two weeks. Residents renewing by mail or online also can renew their zone parking stickers at the same time at a cost of $2 each.
- In-person beginning on Tuesday, June 1 at Skokie Village Hall, 5127 Oakton Street, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Finance Department counter can only serve two customers at a time, and residents should expect significant wait times when purchasing in-person, especially during the last two weeks in July.
Pet licenses, which must be renewed each year, can be purchased at the Finance Department counter. By ordinance, all cats and dogs living in Skokie are required to have a license. Fees are $25 for animals that are not neutered or spayed, and $10 for animals that are neutered or spayed. When purchasing a pet license, please bring a copy of the animal’s rabies vaccination certificate and veterinary proof of neutering or spaying, if applicable. For more information on vehicle licenses, zone parking stickers or pet licenses, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Finance Department at 847/933-8423.
