Any person who must register a vehicle for personal property tax must also purchase and display a Town Vehicle Decal as proof of registration with the Town and payment of Personal Property Tax. The Town of Leesburg issues permanent decals that are valid as long as the vehicle is owned by the purchaser and all personal property taxes are current. The decal fee is still assessed and due annually.
Vehicles must be registered within 30 days at Department of Motor Vehicles and the County of Loudoun prior to purchasing a Town of Leesburg decal.
Annual Decal Fees
Even though the Town issues permanent decals, decal fees are assessed and due annually. For information on annual decal fee payment options, please visit the Decal Payment Options page.
*The Town will issue one decal at the price specified above but reprints will be charged at full price.

The vehicle must be registered with Loudoun County before the Town can register your vehicle. Upon purchasing a vehicle, Virginia DMV or the dealership is not responsible for registering with Loudoun County or the Town of Leesburg. Registering a vehicle and/or requesting a Town decal can not be done online. You can download the registration form (above), complete and return for processing. A decal will be mailed to you.
Residents making vehicle purchases are responsible for purchasing a new decal within 30 days of purchase.
If you purchase a new vehicle, you may transfer the decal from a vehicle already registered in the Town to that new vehicle for $1.00. To transfer a decal, you must remove the decal from the old vehicle and return it to the Town. If a vehicle has been traded and the decal destroyed, you must sign a affidavit confirming the destruction of the decal from the dealership.
Residents moving from another Virginia jurisdiction may exchange their current decal for $1.00 (within 30 days of relocating) with proof of purchase of that decal.
Please Note: Vehicles in Virginia must also display a state inspection sticker which must be renewed annually.
