Legislation giving motorists the option to register their vehicles for more than one year at a time would provide a convenience and save the state money said State Senator Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods), chief sponsor of the bill.
Senate Bill 2293, which passed the Senate May 1, would allow motorists, beginning in 2020, to register their vehicles for one or two years. It would also allow owners of trailers to register their trailer up to five years. The price per year would be the same but an individual would be able to pay it up front and not have to change their sticker every year.
“I’m all for making life easier for Illinoisans. This legislation provides a convenience to those who are able to pay more than one year at a time, and alleviates the burden of renewing it year after year.” said Sen. McConchie. “This legislation will also ultimately save the state money and provide more efficiency within the Secretary of State’s Department.”
Currently, ten states give individuals the option to register their vehicle for longer than one year.
