New to Alabama? Register your vehicle
For any motor vehicle requiring a certificate of title, the vehicle owner must apply for an Alabama certificate of title. Title applications are completed through designated agents of the Alabama Department of Revenue. The title fee is $15 plus any other commissions due the designated agents.
Vehicles being titled for the first time in Alabama must be inspected by the designated agent before the title application can be completed. After the inspection, the license plate issuing official will collect the necessary fees and taxes and issue a license plate.
The vehicle owner has twenty calendar days from the date of vehicle purchase or acquisition to register the vehicle.
