Proof of Citizenship


For RENEWAL Application: Effective March 1, 2018, ALL Individual Resident and Non-Resident Alabama applicants must submit proof of citizenship (IF IT HAS NOT EVER BEEN SUBMITTED) by clicking here before their license is renewed.

In accordance with the Beason-Hammon Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act, Alabama is now required to verify the citizenship of ALL APPLICANTS.
