Every resident or business must provide a vehicle sticker for each vehicle registered or housed to an address within the corporate limits of Elk Grove Village (Village Code 6-2-2). Vehicle stickers go on sale beginning in mid-April each year and must be displayed in the lower passenger-side corner of the windshield no later than June 1. Vehicles that do not have a sticker displayed by June 1 and are registered or housed with Elk Grove Village are subject to citation.
For new vehicles, residents or businesses, stickers are required within 30 days of purchasing the vehicle or establishing an address within Elk Grove Village.

Pet Tags No Longer Required
Pet owners in Elk Grove Village are no longer required to license their pets with the Village, following a vote by the Village Board to eliminate the pet licensing requirement in January, 2016. With the increase in microchipping, the Village pet licensing system had become outdated and redundant. Pet owners are still required to have their pets vaccinated against rabies and get a tag as proof, as required by Cook County.
