Driving Fore the Game

Alabama’s Only Golf License Plate
The AGA is proud to have launched Alabama’s first-ever and only golf-themed license plate. Now, Alabamians will have the option to drive off the path and support the Alabama Golf Foundation by Driving Fore the Game. We have until October 31, 2022, to secure 1,000 pre-commitments to officially launch the license plate in 2022. 

The Alabama Golf Foundation will receive over $40,000 annually by pre-selling 1,000 plates. The cost is $50 annually + a standard $5 admin fee on top of the annual license plate fees. All proceeds will directly support our junior golf initiatives, including but not limited to Youth on Course and starting a male scholarship program to mirror the women's scholarship program.


When can I buy an Alabama Golf Association license plate?

To make our design available to our Alabama golf community, we need 1,000 people to pre-commit to purchasing our license plate by October 31, 2022. You can pre-commit to purchasing the plate here. Select the Individual Commitment option, then click on the tab that reads “8/1/2021–7/31/2022.” Finally, select the option to request our plate. Please, select the Opt-In option, to ensure our organization has a record of your pre-commitment. The Alabama Golf Association thanks you for your commitment to our organization and growing the game.


How much is an Alabama Golf Association license plate?

The annual cost is $50 annually + a $5 admin fee. The admin fee is deducted from the $50 the registrants pay. The net proceeds of the $5 shall be distributed to the Department of Revenue, while the net proceeds of the $41.25 directly support the Alabama Golf Foundation. There is a $5 metal plate fee that is due whenever a registrant first registers a vehicle or if it is time for the registrant to receive a new plate after their existing plate has been in use for 5 years. This $5 fee is not special for a distinctive plate, as it is required for all registrations. 

Allocation of funds:

• $1.25 retained by licensing official
• $1.50 for production and manufacturing costs
• $1.00 for Admin fee, retained by Revenue
• $5.00 for Department of Senior Services

When is the best time to purchase an Alabama Golf Association license plate?

Most people obtain one when it is time to renew their current license plate, but you don’t have to wait! You can purchase an AGA license plate all year round.


In what months are license plates renewed?

Alabama registers vehicles under a staggered registration system, January through November, based on the first letter of the owner’s last name.  Motor vehicle registrations expire on the last day of the designated renewal month.  For example, someone whose last name begins with the letter F, G, or N is required to register his/her vehicle in the month of April, and the previous registration expires on April 30. Leased, commercial and fleet vehicles are subject to renewal in the months of October and November and the registrations for these types of vehicles expire on November 30. Vehicles registered pursuant to the International Registration Plan (IRP) are assigned renewal registration months by the Department.


Where do I get the license plate?

License plates may be purchased through the:
Pre-Commitment Portal: https://precommit.mvtrip.alabama.gov/ 
Licensing Office: https://revenue.alabama.gov/motor-vehicle/vehicle-licensing-offices/ 


Can I personalize the license plate?

Yes, you can personalize your AGA license plate at no additional cost. Six is the maximum number of letters or numbers for a personalized tag. Personalized messages must be approved by the Department of Revenue. You can reserve a personalized tag online. The personalized license plate reservation will be held for five business days. Reservations must be redeemed at the licensing official's office within this time, or the reservation will be forfeited.


What is the money used for?

The AGA is committed to growing the game, hosting exciting events and offering a competitive landscape that grows the golfer of any age. If the Alabama Golf Foundation can pre-sell 1000 plates, then the Alabama Golf Foundation will receive $50,000 annually to support our junior golf initiatives including but not limited to Youth on Course and starting a male scholarship program to mirror the women’s scholarship program. Impact happens on and off the course. 100% of your donation will be applied towards the Alabama Golf Foundation’s efforts to support amateur golf across the state.

You will receive a pre-commitment a Pre-Commitment Redemption Voucher by email, notifying you when the plate will be available.

Both documents are available for reprint and can be requested by contacting MVD or your license plate issuing official. These resources have access to both documents and can reprint as needed.

The money held in escrow is distributed to the sponsoring organization along with a list of all registrants who submitted pre-commitments for the plate design. Please contact the sponsoring organization for further information including the possibility of refunds. The AGA will only know who has pre-committed when each registrant chooses the Opt-In option.
