Village Vehicle and Animal Licenses

2019 Village Vehicle and Animal License Renewals 

The Village issues annual vehicle and animal licenses to our residents, with renewals due May 1 of each year. Any vehicle license renewals will now incur a $50 late fee penalty. Please Note: the online payment portal for license renewals is now closed.

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. 


New in 2019 – Commemorative Vehicle License

Show off your love of the Glencoe community with a commemorative sesquicentennial vehicle license sticker! In honor of the Village's 150th anniversary of incorporation, special stickers are being sold to help fundraise for special events and activities throughout the year. $50 of each $100 license will go toward the festivities. Participation is optional - standard vehicle licenses may still be purchased for $50 per vehicle.

The Village of Glencoe is celebrating its 150th anniversary of incorporation in 2019. As such, to supplement the Sesquicentennial Planning Committee’s fundraising efforts, residents will have the option to purchase a commemorative Sesquicentennial vehicle license. This license will carry an exclusive commemorative design.  

Vehicle and Animal License Fees and Payment Options
Vehicle licenses are $50 and pet licenses are $20, except for seniors who receive a discounted vehicle sticker rate of $25 per vehicle. The commemorative Sesquicentennial vehicle license may be purchased for $100.
