How do I get an ASF license plate?
Go to the commitment to purchase application, fill out the pre-commitment form, and submit your payment. Once we reach 1,000 preorders, the Alabama Department of Revenue will produce the plate and email you a voucher for an ASF license plate.
How much does it cost?
$50 plus your usual license plate fees and taxes, and it is tax deductible.
I already have a personalized license plate. Will this cost more?
No. If you currently pay $50 for a personalized license plate, there will ultimately be no additional cost to make it an ASF license plate. You will still need to preorder and pay your $50 now, but that will be $50 saved when you renew.
Do I need to wait until my license plate expires before I pre-commit?
No, you do not need to wait until your plate expires. The pre-commitment process shows the Alabama Department of Revenue that there are enough supporters for the ASF license plate to be manufactured. It is separate from the license plate renewal process. We will need at least 1,000 presale commitments by December 31, 2018.
What if I just renewed my license plate?
No problem! The license plates will not be available until we get to 1,000 preorders/commitments. At that point, you will be able to use your pre-commitment funds toward your next license plate, whenever that may be!
What if my vehicle is jointly owned?
That should not be an issue. When filling out the application form, we advise using the first person listed on your vehicle registration. You could also fill out the application with both names separated by an ampersand.
What happens if 1,000 pre-commitments are not reached by December 31, 2018?
If 1,000 pre-commitments are not reached, the ASF plate will not be created.
Is the fee refundable?
The $50 cost is refundable if we do NOT reach 1,000 pre-commitments. Otherwise, it will cover the cost of your plate. The Alabama Department of Revenue does charge a $2 fee that is not refundable.
What information is needed to preorder?
You will need either your current Alabama license plate number or the year, make, model and VIN of your vehicle and a credit/debit card.
When will the Alabama Shakespeare Festival license plate be in production?
We will have until December 31, 2018, to reach 1,000 pre-commitments. Once we reach 1,000 pre-commitments, the plates will go into production.
I’ve committed, when can I get my license plate?
Once we reach 1,000 pre-commitments, the license plate will move into production. Production will take about 2-3 months to produce the plates. Everyone who preordered a license plate will be notified via email of when the plates will be ready for issuance and will receive a voucher for their ASF license plate. When you are ready to renew, take the voucher to your local probate office.
