TITLE AND REGISTRATION


Apply for Registration and Title

The Electronic Registration and Title (ERT) System allows you to complete and print an Application for Vehicle Transaction(s) (VSD 190) online. Alternatively, you may obtain Title and Registration applications by visiting the nearest Secretary of State facility or call toll-free within Illinois: 1-(800) 252-8980.

By properly completing your vehicle title and registration applications, our office can process your request more quickly and efficiently. Title applications can be processed by mail or by visiting the nearest Secretary of State facility.

Applications to Complete

Use the Application for Vehicle Transaction(s) (VSD 190) for any plate-related transaction, i.e. title and plates, plates only, sticker only, title and transfer, transfer of plates only, corrected registration ID card or duplicate registration ID card.

Use the Application for Vehicle Transaction(s) (VSD 190) for any transaction for title without plates, i.e. title only (if the vehicle will not be operated); duplicate title; junking certificate, corrected title or salvage certificate.

For a corrected registration ID and corrected title, you must fill an Application for Vehicle Transaction(s) (VSD 190).

If you recently purchased and have not titled or registered the vehicle you are bringing into Illinois, you must complete a tax form. If purchased from a dealer, you must complete Tax Form RUT-25. If purchased from an individual, you must complete Tax Form RUT-50. One of these forms must be presented with a separate tax payment made out to the Illinois Department of Revenue at the time you apply for Title and Registration.
