The Illinois Secretary of State’s Office has stopped sending out renewal notices of car license plates, saving the state $450,000 monthly, but there is an easy way to still get a notice. The office will schedule an email reminder for plate renewals.
Car owners can register at cyberdriveillinois.com getting their name on the list. At the top of the website, is a license plate reading EMAIL ME. To the right is a green license plate tag. By clicking on that tag, you can register to receive the reminder email.
Owners need to have their registration ID and pin number available. If you don’t have a current registration card, contact the Public Inquiry Division at 1-800-252-8980 for assistance.
