Exemptions
(1) Effective January 1, 2012, no certificate of title shall be issued for any manufactured homes, trailer, semi-trailer, travel trailer, or fold-
ing 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 calendar 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 fold-
ing 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 manu-
facturer, older than thirty-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

subsequent title, including a replacement certificate of title, can be issued if the vehicle is exempt from titling.
