Where Can I Buy A Chicago City Sticker

The City Vehicle Sticker is an annual wheel tax levied by the City of Chicago. If you have a vehicle within the city limits for a period of thirty (30) days or longer, you are required to purchase a sticker, even if your vehicle is registered outside of the City of Chicago.
