Documentation Requirements
  • Due to Alabama’s mandatory liability insurance law, a valid, state-issued driver's license, non-driver's identification card, or national driver's license must be provided for each owner reflected on the vehicle title.
  • If there are two owners and their names are joined by "and,” both owners must be present to sign the title application or one has to send an original notarized power of attorney. If there are two owners with no connecting word, it is considered "and." If names are joined by "or," only one owner is needed to register the vehicle. Each owner reflected on the vehicle title must present a valid government issued driver's license or non driver's ID.
