You must renew your Illinois car registration before it expires to continue driving your vehicle legally in the state. If you do not renew your registration on time and are caught with an expired decal, you can be pulled over and fined. You can complete a vehicle registration renewal in Illinois in multiple ways, including online and in person at a DMV office. The simplest and most convenient way to renew your registration is online.
Did you know? If your auto registration was lost, stolen or damaged but you are already within the period for renewal, you can renew your registration rather than request a replacement.
