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 pre-commitments, 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 normal tag fees and taxes, and it is tax deductible.

I already have a personalized car tag. Will this cost more?

No. If you currently pay $50 for a personalized car tag, there will ultimately be no additional cost to make it an ASF car tag. You will still need to commit and pay your $50 now, but that will be $50 saved when you renew.

Do I need to wait until my tag expires before I pre-commit to the ASF license plate?

No, you do not need to wait until your tag 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 tag renewal process. We will need at least 1,000 pre-sale commitments by December 31, 2018.

What if I just renewed my tag?

No problem! The car tags will not be available until we get to 1,000 pre-commits. At that point, you will be able to use your pre-commitment funds toward your next license plate, whenever that may be!

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 pre-commit?

You will need either your current Alabama license plate number or the year, make, model and VIN of your vehicle.

When will the Alabama Shakespeare Festival 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 plate?

Once we reach 1,000 pre-commitments the plate will move into production. Production will take about 2-3 months to produce the plates. Everyone who committed to the plate will be notified via email of when the plates will be ready for issuance and will receive a voucher for their ASF plate. When you are ready to renew your tag, take the voucher to your local probate office to order your tag.
