If you lose your Alabama driver's license, you will need to visit your local driver's license office in person to apply for a duplicate license.
You will need to provide proper identification, so take along a birth certificate or passport and your Social Security card. You are not required to report your lost or stolen license to the police, but you might wish to do so if you're concerned about the risk of identity theft.
The cost for a duplicate license is $18.50.
A lost, misplaced, or stolen license when you're traveling can give you major headaches, but the State of Alabama makes getting a replacement fairly easy. The process is the same whether you're traveling within the United States or in a foreign country.
Print and complete an Application for a Renewal or Duplicate License for Alabama Drivers Temporarily Out of State. Mail the application, along with the appropriate documentation and fees, to:
- Driver License Division
- P.O. Box 1471
- Montgomery, AL 36102-1471
Be sure to include the address where you are staying; the Driver License Division will mail the replacement license directly to that address. You can get a duplicate by mail as long as your current license has not expired (if it has, you'll need to renew it).
Anyone making a false claim to receive a duplicate license can be charged with perjury, forgery, or both and penalized with fines and jail time.
