Thank you for choosing to renew your tag online. You may renew your boat registration as well. Online renewal of business licenses are available during the renewal month of October each year.

Limestone County is one of the early counties in the State of Alabama to offer this online service.  It's a convenient way to keep from standing in line at the courthouse annex and renew your tag at your home or business.

Beginning in 2017, new or used vehicle purchases from licensed Alabama dealers may also be submitted for online registration. In order to apply online you should have available dealer provided copies of the bill of sale and the Application For Certificate Of Title (Alabama Department of Revenue Form MVT 5-1E), along with your evidence of liability insurance and valid Alabama driver license of each owner. Online application for registration of a vehicle purchase from Alabama dealers should be completed within fifteen (15) calendar days of the purchase date. Delinquent registrations of vehicle purchases are not available for online services. 

The methods of payment include MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, or an electronic check from your checking account.  The convenience fee per tag or boat renewal for an electronic check is $3.50 for the first item and $2.50 for each additional item. Credit and debit transactions will be charged a 3% convenience fee with a minimum of $3.50 and $2.50 for each additional tag or boat renewal. The fee for business license renewal is $5.00. The convenience fee is not paid to Limestone County but to IMS Enterprises, Inc., an Alabama company.

Upon completion of your renewal, you will receive a confirmation number and a printed receipt. Please record the confirmation number, print and retain the receipt until you receive your actual license plate or your annual decal.
