Alabama’s standard license plate will be getting a new look for the New Year (2022).
The Alabama Department of Revenue will begin shipping the newly designed license plate in December, for issuance starting in January of 2022. The license plate, which replaces the current design showing a mountain scene, has the image of a beach with www.alabama.travel at the bottom.
Those plates may be personalized for an extra $50; license plate designs are changed every five years.
Other license plate changes:
Alabama currently rotates license plate expiration stickers using three colors: red, green and yellow. Starting in 2022 and moving forward, only yellow will be used.
Other new tags were unveiled earlier this year. Among those were:
The Alabama Gold Star Families tag was redesigned with the new plate available in January. That tag is available for purchase by members of the immediate family of a person who has died while on active duty in any branch of the U.S. military.
The Albertville City Schools Foundation’s new tag design was released in February. The net proceeds of the $50 cost are to be distributed to the Albertville City Schools Foundation to be used to provide training material, for purchase of computers and in various programs.
The Curing Childhood Cancer newly redesigned tag became available in January, and the net proceeds of the $50 tag are going to be distributed to the UAB Department of Pediatrics/Children’s Department for a variety of medical research expenses – which will include equipment supplies and other-related expenditures.
Other new tags and designs unveiled this year were: Help End Epilepsy, Professional Firefighters, the National Wild Turkey Federation, and a Support the Arts tag.
