Chicago City Vehicle Sticker FAQs

All Chicago residents driving and/or parking a vehicle for which they are responsible in the City of Chicago are subject to the Chicago Wheel Tax and must purchase a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker. This includes Chicago residents that maintain their registration outside of the City of Chicago, but use the vehicle in the City. We want motorists to avoid costly tickets: You must purchase a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker within 30 days of residing in the City to avoid late fees and fines.

Revenue from the Chicago City Vehicle Sticker Sales Program funds the repair and maintenance of more than 4,000 miles of Chicago streets.

For more details, see the Chicago Wheel Tax Administrative Rules and Municipal Code Chapter 3-56-020.
