Vehicle stickers

All vehicles registered in the State of Illinois with a River Forest address must also be registered with the Village through the purchase of a vehicle license sticker.

Vehicle Sticker Deadline Delayed

Due to the unprecedented circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the deadline for purchasing vehicle stickers has been delayed by 60 days. Therefore, the stated deadline of July 14 on the application has been extended to September 14, 2020. In order to avoid late fees and citations, vehicle stickers must be purchased and affixed to your windshield by September 14, 2020.
