    In Alabama, any vehicle used on public roads must be registered, titled, and tagged by the Department of Revenue's Motor Vehicle Division (MVD). If you have a vehicle used only on your own property or off-road, you do not have to register, title, or tag it.

    ATVs, Scooters, and Mopeds

    If you will be using your scooter or moped on the road for transportation, you'll need to visit your local tag office to complete the proper paperwork and pay the appropriate fees.

    All vehicles requiring registration, including motorcycles, custom-built cars, RVs and motorhomes go through the same process as for car registration. Just make sure you have all the needed documentation in hand when you visit the tag office, and the transaction should move smoothly.


    All trailers, including travel trailers manufactured in 1990 or later, collapsible camping trailers, utility trailers, and truck trailers, must be tagged and titled. The process is the same as for car registration.
