How to Apply for a New & Distinctive Alabama Marine License Plate

The new Alabama Marine license plate is open for ANY Alabama driver to purchase for $50. This is the cost for any distinctive specialty plate.

To secure your unique and customizable U.S. Marine Corps license plate, you are required to:

  • purchase a pre-commitment for the distinctive license plate
  • complete the online “Commitment to Purchase” application
  • and pay the $50 distinctive plate fee.

Again, this new plate is available for any Marine, anyone with a connection to a Marine, or those who generally wish to support the Marine Veteran community.

  • Proceeds from purchases of these new license plates will be distributed to the Alabama Marine Triad (AMT), a partnership that encompasses the Semper Fi Community Task Force (HQ Huntsville), the Krulak Marine Alliance of Alabama (HQ Hoover), and the Alabama Marines Foundation (HQ Tuscaloosa). All funds received by these organizations from the sale of the new Marine license plates will be applied to improving the quality of life for our Veterans and their families.

Please note that applicants will continue to use their current, valid Alabama license plate, as no registration changes are made at this point in the process.
