License plate renewal notifications suspended during state budget impasse
December 2, 2015
Illinois residents will need to take one more precaution before driving due to a recent budget cut that has suspended mailing of vehicle registration renewal notifications.
The Illinois Secretary of State’s office said this cutback is due to the ongoing state budget impasse.
According to the Secretary of State’s site, cyberdriveillinois.com, suspending notifications will save the state $450,000 per month. The money saved by this suspension will be used to send drivers their vehicle registration renewal stickers, titles and license plates to vehicle owners for a few months longer before the postage account is depleted.
Drivers can sign up for online notifications via the state’s CyberDrive site.
