Vehicle Stickers

Vehicle Sticker Order Online

Village code requires all residents and businesses of Glendale Heights who own, operate, maintain, house, store, rent, lease, or have custody of a vehicle or series of vehicles that is/are registered with the Illinois Secretary of State to an address within the Village shall obtain a Village vehicle sticker for the current year for the use of such vehicle on any public street or highway within the village. Within 45 days of moving into the Village or purchasing a vehicle, vehicle owners must purchase and display a current Village vehicle sticker on the vehicle's lower right windshield.

Residents of the Village are required to present a valid current Illinois registration showing that the vehicle is registered to them at their Glendale Heights address, or acceptable proof of address, prior to obtaining a vehicle sticker. Adequate proofs of residency include a driver's license, utility bill, or lease. Residents who bring home a business vehicle are required to provide a letter on company letterhead indicating to whom the vehicle is assigned with their home address as proof of residency and registration. Failure to provide proof of residency of a Village address will result in sticker cost to be doubled.

Vehicle stickers for new vehicles or new residents must be purchased in-person at the Finance counter at Village Hall. In order to obtain a sticker, please provide:

  • Proof of residency
  • The vehicle's registration or insurance card & license plate number

If this is for a new car ONLY: A bill of sale or proof of purchase that shows the vehicle was purchased within the past 45 days.

If this is for a new resident ONLY: A lease or closing document that shows the resident has moved in within the past 45 days.

Per Village Ordinance, overnight parking on Village streets is restricted to those vehicles having a valid vehicle sticker.

Between May 1st and May 15th of each year, the Village mails vehicle renewal applications for all vehicles which hold current vehicle stickers. The renewal application must be completed and mailed back, or processed in person at the Village prior to the deadline of June 30th. Vehicle stickers are valid from July 1st through June 30th of the following year. Important: failure to receive a license renewal application does not exclude late applicants from late fees or associated fines. We strongly recommend purchasing your stickers early and online to avoid long lines and penalties (see "Online Renewals" below).

Residents and businesses who fail to purchase and display a vehicle sticker for their vehicle(s) by midnight of the due date will be subject to late fees and citations.
