Village Vehicle and Animal Licenses

VehicleSticker_HeadlinesVillage Vehicle and Animal Licenses

The Village issues annual Vehicle and Pet Licenses to our residents, with renewals due May 1 of each year. Vehicle licenses are required for all motor vehicles registered in the State of Illinois with a Village of Glencoe address. Village Ordinance requires that licenses be displayed and properly affixed to the passenger-side windshield. Similarly, any person owning a cat or dog over six months old is required to purchase a license for that pet.

Passenger vehicle licenses are $50, except for seniors who receive a discounted rate of $25 and pet licenses are $20. During the renewal period (March-May) residents can pay online (www.villageofglencoe.org/pay) and at any point throughout the year, new applications and renewals can be submitted by mail, via the white drop box outside Village Hall or in-person at Village Hall during regular business hours (8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday).

Licenses purchased after the May 1 due date will incur a $50 late fee penalty. Public Safety begins license enforcement on May 1. Learn more about each license below.
