Registration and Driver’s License Renewal Reminder:
The Hinsdale Police Department has recently observed many more vehicles than usual with expired license plates. In September 2015, the Illinois Secretary of State announced it will no longer be sending registration renewal reminders to vehicle owners, or those with expiring driver’s licenses. Residents are commonly caught by surprise when they are stopped or cited for the offense.
It has been a long standing habit for many to rely on the reminder notice to renew. Please use this opportunity to ensure your registration and driver's license is current, and consider implementing a reminder system for yourself. The fine for an expired registration violation may be up to $120, and even greater for an expired driver's license.
