The following redesigned license plates will be available for issuance beginning August 1, 2023:

  • Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

A supply of license plates based on the number of current registrations in each county has been ordered and should be arriving soon. Personalized license plates may be ordered on demand through the Plate Reservation and Ordering System (PROS).

Beginning August 1, 2023, discontinue the issuance of license plates with the old design and retain for audit purposes.  

The tag numbering scheme for the license plate may be found at https://www.revenue.alabama.gov/division/motor-vehicle/ under “License Plate and Registration Information” then “Fee Schedule” then “Registration File Information.”
