License Sticker Renewals at IAA CU
by Jeff Malcom
If you haven’t heard, the state of Illinois is no longer sending out license sticker renewals in the mail. This has caused some drivers to worry heavily about expired stickers. In the past, our members have been reminded via a renewal postcard, sent by the Illinois Secretary of State, and then they simply bring their postcard to IAA CU or to the DMV. Now, there’s no postcard to jumpstart the renewal process.
Since the change, the Illinois Secretary of State’s office says fewer motorists renewed their license plate stickers in November and December. In fact, renewals fell 19 percent in November, according to the Chicago Tribune. This is most likely attributed to the change in renewal reminders. In fact, there are probably many people driving right now with expired stickers.
As the IAA Credit Union is the go-to place for many of our members to renew their stickers, we want to remind all of our members to check their sticker expiration. Even with the change in renewal reminders, we still do sticker renewals!
To renew your license plate sticker at the IAA CU main branch, you will need the following:
Your Old Registration
Renewal Notice Postcard
VIN, Plate Number, and Expiration of Current Sticker
Your “Green Mail” (email) Renewal Reminder from the Secretary of State
If you’re worried about making sure your license plates are renewed on time every year, here are some of the things we recommend doing:
- Sign up for “Green Mail” (email) renewal reminders through the Secretary of State’s website.
- Set a recurring calendar reminder in your Outlook or phone calendar.
- Put it on your calendar at home.
Here at the IAA Credit Union, we are honored to be your one-stop shop for all of your banking needs. We can’t wait to see you when your license plate sticker expires (and hopefully before then)!
Thank you for your membership!
