No Registration Tickets

Registering your vehicle with your local Department of Motor Vehicles or DMV registration removal is one of the most crucial parts of car ownership. If the police pull you over and discover that your car is unregistered, they may issue a traffic ticket. This offense is a non-moving violation that carries heavy fines and severe consequences.

No Registration Tickets in Illinois

According to Illinois law, the rear license plate of every car registered must have a valid Illinois registration sticker under Illinois Vehicle Code 625 ILCS 5/3-414. The sticker's expiration month varies from person to person because it usually lasts one year from the date of purchase, although the Illinois Secretary of State sets the date. Tags must be visible on all cars, and you will get a license plate and can drive legally in the state once your vehicle has been registered.

The state will suspend your registration if you drive without auto insurance. An expired registration indicates that the car is not authorized to be driven on Illinois roads.  

Driving Without Registration in Chicago

Driving a car without registration is considered an administrative offense in Illinois. An offender with little to no experience with expired registration cases may find them puzzling, even though they are often easy and uncomplicated. There is a fine for driving unregistered car if you get a ticket in Illinois. A late penalty fee will also be incurred if your status has been inactive for over 30 days. 

You have few options if you are handed a ticket for driving without vehicle registration. If the officer decides to proceed with the ticket even after you updated your license but haven't gotten your new tags, you can provide evidence to the court or show the officer. You will be responsible for paying the cost to update your information if it has expired. You could even receive a lower fine if you complete this before your scheduled court appearance. 

Penalties for Driving Without Registration

Under the Illinois Vehicle Code, violators may be subject to fines and jail terms, depending on the offense. The base fine for driving without proof of registration is $164, and the possibility of car impoundment is high. The owner would then pay towing and impound fees to get the car back. Extra fines and penalties can be imposed if the vehicle is uninsured. In certain circumstances, a judge may order the person driving unregistered vehicle to get registered. 

Most driving violations in Illinois are classified as "petty" or "misdemeanor" crimes. Only fines are imposed for minor infractions. These include speeding penalties, lane change offenses, stop signs, and red light violations. If the offender has a clean driving record, the court may grant an order of supervision for most minor traffic infractions. A supervision order typically shows the defendant being supervised for a predetermined time, paying a fine, and attending a traffic school. A conviction will not appear on the defendant's driving record if they comply with the court-imposed requirements before the end of the supervision period. Instead, the case will be dismissed. 

Penalty for driving without a license can be severe if the state has proof. It is often handled as a Class A misdemeanor, Illinois's most serious charge before a felony. This implies that the judge may impose a fine of up to $2,500, a year in jail, or both. 

If You Lost Your Car Registration

Suppose your concerns are: I lost my car registration, I lost my title to my car, or I lost my vehicle registration. Inform your auto insurance company. If you misplace your vehicle's license in Illinois, you can get a duplicate from the Illinois Secretary of State's office. The standard procedure for completing this is to submit an Application for Duplicate Vehicle/Watercraft Documentation form. The cost is $25. You must provide the car information, including the VIN, model, and year. The duplicate enrollment will be mailed to you within a few weeks. If you have relocated, ensure your address is on file with the Secretary of State. A lockbox or fireproof safe would be a good place to store vehicle license documents. Never let them stay in the car.

If you want to preserve a duplicate of the registration in case the original is misplaced or destroyed, think about creating copies of it. Enroll in the Secretary of State's electronic notification service to receive alerts when renewing your registration. Create calendar alerts to remind you to renew your license. Make sure you renew your car registration as soon as possible to prevent any lapses or additional costs. Renewals can be completed online, via mail, or in person at the Secretary of State location.
