How to Register (4 Steps)

Following the purchase of a vehicle, the new owner has 20 days to transfer the certificate of title with the Office of the Illinois Secretary of State.[1] Vehicle registration can be completed at the same time.

 

1. Emissions Test

Because some vehicles require an emissions test, the owner should review the Illinois EPA Testing Program website to see if the vehicle is subject to testing.[2]

2. Application Form

To apply for registration and title, the owner must complete the Application for Vehicle Transaction(s) (VSD 190) online. Otherwise, the owner can obtain a physical form from their local DMV.

3. Supporting Documents

The following paperwork must be gathered for submission to the DMV[3]:

  • Assignment of Title (signed by previous owner)
  • Original vehicle registration card
  • Tax Form RUT-50 (available at DMV facilities)
    • Plus a check, draft, or money order for tax payment
  • Bill of sale (typically not required)
  • Odometer Disclosure (unless mileage is stated on title)

4. Submission

The owner must file the application form and supporting documents with the DMV and pay all registration and titling fees.

Alternatively, all application documents can be mailed to the following address:

Secretary of State
Vehicle Services Department
501 S. 2nd. St., Room 014
Springfield, IL 62756
