Instructions
This form shall be typed or printed legibly.
Illegible forms will be returned.
This form is designed for use by a lienholder in order for an owner of a vehicle to comply with section
32-8-61, Code of Alabama 1975, where an owner creates a security interest in a vehicle.
This form may not be used on a transfer of ownership or by designated agents. Designated
agents shall use form MVT 5-1E to record liens.
NOTE: Vehicle information and owner information shall be identical to information appearing
on surrendered alabama title except for current mailing address and current alabama
resident address.
SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS – This application shall be accompanied by the current Alabama title to
this vehicle and the title fee (certified funds only) payable to the Alabama Department of Revenue.
Exemptions
(1) Effective January 1, 2012, no certificate of title shall be issued for any manufactured homes, trail-
er, semi-trailer, travel trailer, or folding or collapsible camping trailer more than twenty (20) model
years old. This exemption is applicable on January 1 of each year and applies to all manufactured
homes, trailers, semi-trailers, travel trailers, and folding or collapsible camping trailers with a
model year, as designated by the manufacturer, older than twenty (20) years from the current cal-
endar year. All utility trailers, other than folding or collapsible camping trailers, are still exempt
from titling regardless of the year model.
Example: As of January 1, 2012, all 1991 and prior year model manufactured homes, trailers,
semi-trailers, travel trailers, and folding or collapsible camping trailers are exempt from the titling
provisions of Chapter 8, Title 32, Code of Alabama 1975.
(2) Effective January 1, 2012, no certificate of title shall be issued for any motor vehicle more than
thirty-five (35) model years old. This exemption is applicable on January 1 of each year and
applies to all motor vehicles with a model year, as designated by the manufacturer, older than thir-
ty-five (35) years from the current calendar year.
Example: As of January 1, 2012, all 1976 and prior year model motor vehicles are exempt from
the titling provisions of Chapter 8, Title 32, Code of Alabama 1975.
(3) Effective January 1, 2012, no certificate of title shall be issued for a low speed vehicle. A low
speed vehicle is defined as a four-wheeled motor vehicle with a top speed of not greater than 25
miles per hour, a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of which is less than 3,000 pounds and
complying with the safety standards provided in 49 C.F.R. Section 571.500. The term includes
neighborhood electric vehicles.
NOTE: The exemption from titling does not invalidate any Alabama certificate of title that is
currently in effect. However, no subsequent title, including a certificate of title to record
or transfer a lien, can be issued if the vehicle is exempt from titling.
