You have selected the easiest and most convenient way for Jefferson County residents to renew their Alabama motor vehicle and boat registration. You can complete your renewal in a few simple steps.
Driver's License stations at the Birmingham Courthouse location will be temporarily suspended on Thursday, July 30 in order to accommodate the installation of new driver's license system software and equipment upgrades. The Bessemer Courthouse location will be open and available for driver's license renewals and replacements on this date. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this regard.
To ensure proper completion of this transaction, the “pop-up” blocker must be disabled. Failure to do so may cause a five (5) day delay in processing your request. (Show instructions)
