    License Plate Recognition (LPR)
    Illinois State is using LPR to enforce the majority of our permits. Instead of a physical permit, you will be issued a virtual permit. Your virtual permit will be tied to your license plate. Students are limited to one license plate per permit. Faculty and staff may register more than one license plate.
    Because your permit will be linked to your license plate it is extremely important that your license plate is entered correctly in our system. Please see the license plate entry requirements. Additionally, it is imperative you select the correct license plate during the permit election process. You may add a new license plate or edit a current plate by selecting the “pay citations/manage account” button on the home page. If you need assistance with this process, please contact our office and we will be happy to help.
