Coming Soon: Permanent Green Vehicle Decals

Vehicle Decal Sample

By the end of July 2021, current vehicle owners in the City will receive decal(s) for each registered vehicle. This replaces the blue decal.

Switch to the New Green Decal as Soon as Possible

Place the decal on your vehicle as soon as you receive it. The decal goes on the driver's side of the front windshield, next to the Virginia State Inspection sticker. 

Please ask your mechanic to be careful removing the old state inspection sticker, as they sometimes accidentally remove the City decal as well. 

About the $33 Vehicle License Fee

The annual $33 fee continues. The annual licensing fee will still be added to your personal property tax bill. 

Why Change to a Permanent Decal?

In 2020, the Falls Church City Council voted to move to a permanent vehicle license, also known as the car decal. This practice is in line with other jurisdictions and more convenient for vehicle owners. Visit for more information on the ordinance.
