Kayak/Canoe Paddle New 2013 Title/Registration Info

Postby JasonN » Apr Thu 18, 2013 1:04 pm

Canoes, kayaks and paddle boats will no longer be titled/registered with Illinois UNLESS they have a motor or sail; otherwise customers will be able to purchase a paddle pass at local vendors for $6.00 per stamp for the first three stamps. Any person who purchases more than three stamps receives each subsequent stamp for $3.00 each per calendar year. The stamps must be purchased at the same time in order to receive the discount.

***Non-powered watercraft means any canoe, kayak, kiteboard, paddleboard, float tube, or watercraft not propelled by sail, canvas, or machinery of any sort. The statute indicates: Any person using a non-powered watercraft on the waters of this State shall have a valid water usage stamp affixed to an area easily visible either on the exterior or interior of the device.

Please access the attached link for our website. It will allow you to enter the county or city and will display locations as to where you can purchase a paddle pass. They will be available for purchase around June 01 and will be enforced on July 01, 2013.

Got my water usage pass at Dicks in Bloomingdale today. Cost 6.50. If you have previously gotten a fishing license they just need your Social Sec to pull your info then your Hull Number, Make Model and Color of your Yak, and the rest they will have on file. They give you a sticker with a funky way to attach it.
