Alabama vehicle owners can now pre-order new distinctive license plate designs online.
State Revenue Commissioner Julie Magee says motorists who want to help an organization acquire the necessary number of pre-sales for a distinctive license plate no longer have to go to their county tag office. The new process allows motorists to go a website (https://precommit.mvtrip.alabama.gov ) and pre-order. The commissioner says the computer site will be easier and quicker for motorists.
Alabama's standard license plate is switching from a coastal scene to the mountains of north Alabama.
The state Revenue Department says the new tag will be available Jan. 1. It will replace the "Sweet Home Alabama" tag that promotes Alabama's coast. State Tourism Department spokesman Brian Jones says the new tag is designed with mountains and a lake reminiscent of north Alabama and is designed to show that Alabama has those attractions. The new license plate doesn't include the "Sweet Home Alabama" slogan that was on the old tag.
