New title fee changes announced

Due to action by the Illinois General Assembly, the state has implemented increases in title fees. Money collected will fund statewide transportation and road improvement projects.

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White is alerting the public of motor vehicle title fee changes, which went into effect July 1. The fee changes were a part of a capital bill that was recently signed into law. The Secretary of State’s Office collects the fees set by the legislature.

A certificate of title went from $95 to $150, for vehicles purchase on or after July 1.

The certificate of title for a motor home, mini motor home or van camper went from $95 to $250 on the same day.

Additional changes include a reduced price for a duplicate or corrected title, decreasing from $95 to $50; a salvage title going from $4 to $20; and a junk title going from $0 to $10.

Additional changes impacting vehicle registration fees will take effect January 1, 2020.
