City Vehicle Stickers

City residents who own a vehicle are required to have a valid city sticker. New residents and those who recently purchased a vehicle have 30 days to come into compliance. City stickers are sold through the Chicago City Clerk office. We do not sell city stickers at the 43rd Ward office. You can purchase a sticker at the following locations:

  • City Clerk office  – 121 N. LaSalle, Room 107
  • City Clerk satellite office – 5430 W. Gale
  • Department of Revenue – 2550 W. Addison
  • At most currency exchanges (service fee may apply)
  • Online

You must show proof of address and vehicle registration when purchasing a sticker in person.

The city sticker is required for residents in addition to vehicle registration. For State of Illinois vehicle registration requirements, please click here.

If you are age 65 or older, you are eligible to receive a senior citizen discount on one sticker per household.

Chicago residents living within an established Residential Parking Zone may be eligible to include a Zone Number on their City Sticker at an additional cost of $25 per year (prorated for varying durations). Upon paying to add a zone, the Zone number that corresponds with the signs on your street will appear at the top of your City Sticker. If the word NONE appears on your vehicle sticker, you do not have a Residential Parking Zone on your sticker. If your Zone is NONE, you may be eligible for a Letter of Exception from our office. Please contact us with your address for more information.
