Your car was impounded following a DUI arrest or some other reason. Now you're out of custody and looking to get your impounded vehicle back in Chicago. Here are some things you'll want to know:
Obtaining the Release of Your Impounded Vehicle
You can secure the release of your impounded vehicle in Chicago by appearing in person
at the City Department of Finance building. The building is located at 400 West Superior and you'll want to look for the Revenue Payment Center. The office is typically open between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays, and 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays. The office is closed on Sundays and holidays.
If you provide proof of ownership (e.g., title, vehicle registration), valid identification (e.g., driver's license), and pay the various fees and penalties, you can get your car back. Keep in mind that impoundment due to a narcotics arrest may require an additional release by the Chicago police.
