Yes. If the vehicle was in exempt (stored, inoperable, or other unused) status the registrant should visit their local licensing official to surrender the license plate within thirty days of the MLI verification notice.
Failure to surrender the license plate within 30 calendar days of the MLI verification Notice will result in suspension of their vehicle registration.
Failure to surrender the license plate or completion of the “Request for Registration Revocation” form (MV32-7A-5) within 30 days of the MLI verification notice will result in a registration suspension. However, if the registrant was unable to surrender the plate within 30 days due to any of the reasons listed on MV Form 32-7A-11 (on DOR website), the registrant may qualify for a “good cause” extension. The form should be completed (along with necessary documentation) and submitted to their local licensing official within 30 calendar days from the date that the “good cause” event ended. If the plate and/or a completed form MV32-7A-5 was not submitted to the local licensing official within 30 days of the MLI verification notice and if the registrant does not qualify for any of the good cause reasons listed on MV32-7A-11, reinstatement fees ($200 for first suspension; $400 for second and subsequent suspension) and evidence of current Alabama liability insurance coverage must be provided to their local licensing official to remove the registration suspension.
