What is the car registration fee in Illinois? Illinois
Illinois Fee to Register CarYou'll pay a $99 car registration fee, provided you order a standard IL license plate. This fee applies to both initial vehicle registration and registration renewal.
However, fees vary if you order a specialized license plate. For example, an Eagle Scout license plate will up your annual car registration fee to $126 and a Support Youth Golf license plate will hike your cost to $139. A five-year Antique Vehicle license plate, on the other hand, will only require $30 to register.
Emissions Testing to Curb Illinois SmogKeep in mind that in order to qualify for registration renewal, your vehicle must pass a smog check if you reside in one of the following counties: Lake, Cook, DuPage, parts of Kendall, Monroe, St. Clair, Will, Madison, McHenry, and Kane.
Do not wait until the last day. If your vehicle fails the emissions inspection, you'll need time for repairs. And, until your vehicle can meet the state's emissions standards, you will not be allowed to renew your IL car registration.
If you have questions about smog and emissions testing, call the Illinois EPA at (800) 635-2380 (East St. Louis area) or (847) 758-3400 (Chicago area).
