Default License plate sticker question.

A friend was telling me that the license plate stickers expire 30 days after the said date. Is this true? I need confirmation. ei. 12-07 would expire Jan 31st.

Nope, it expires when it says it expires. If you're driving around with a 12/07 sticker, you risk a ticket. If you're parked on a city street with a 12/07 sticker, you risk a parking ticket. I think your friend is misinterpreting the state's 30-day grace period without a late renewal fee as a 30-day grace period for actually driving around on an expired plate. No such luck.

You only have until the end of December to get a new sticker in your case. Come January 1st its expired and youre liable to get a ticket.

Sorry to dig up an old post but information here is incorrect, most states DO permit 30 days of lapse with your tags. This is to cover the possibility that you renewed electronically the last day of your valid tags and you get a month to be sent your sticker in the mail. No police officer will ticket you the entire month after expiration.

I can prove this information in that I have been pulled over for a tail light not working and it was the month following my expired tag. The officer reminded me to re-register before the end of the month (tags expired in October and it was late November). You can also ask the clerk at any county recorder's office this information and while your tags are technically expired, it is not illegal to drive with expired tags for the first following month, the grace period).

This method does NOT work for anything else car related like your insurance

...and where are you from? In what state and city did you get pulled over?

Where is your proof for what you claim of in Illinois?

Btw-this is not "most states"-this is Illinois. What may apply in most states may or may not apply in Illinois.

The OP didn't ask about "most states." It may be that "most states" have a 30-day grace period. Illinois ain't one of 'em.

Exactly - the Illinois Statutes say that a registration sticker expires at midnight on the last day of the month on the sticker. And the statutes also say that it's illegal to drive a car on public roads without a valid registration. End of story.

The fact that a cop didn't give you a ticket is just a matter of either a judgment call on the cop's part or an execution of that particular police department's policy regarding registration violations.
