Leesburg, VA (November 28, 2017) – Earlier this month, the Leesburg Town Council amended the Town Code to eliminate the requirement for town residents to display windshield decals on their vehicles as proof of town registration. This change became effective on November 14, 2017. Residents no longer need to visit Town Hall to get vehicle decals.

The annual vehicle license fees remain in effect at $25 for automobiles and $15 for motorcycles. The vehicle license fees are included on the annual town personal property tax bills.

The elimination of town vehicle decals does not affect the requirement for town residents to register their vehicles with Loudoun County. Failure to register vehicles location changes or new purchases with Loudoun County will result owners being unable to renew their vehicle registrations with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.

In addition, residential parking zone permit stickers are still required to be displayed on vehicles parked in designated zones.
