A new specialty license plate is now available to residents of Alabama who want to show their support of children with pediatric epilepsy. In a collaboration between the Pediatric Epilepsy Program at Children’s of Alabama and Epilepsy Foundation Alabama, the Help End Epilepsy tag will provide valuable funding for patient care, education, research and specialized physician training for the Pediatric Epilepsy Program at Children’s of Alabama.

When will the tag be produced/when can I get my tag?
We’ve made it! Our 1,000 pre-commitments for the tag have been secured. For anyone that has signed up, the Alabama Department of Revenue will send a voucher and instructions for next steps to the email address you provided. This voucher will not expire. Please save this voucher until your tag renewal month in 2021 and provide it to your local DMV when renewing your tag to receive your free Help End Epilepsy specialty tag. Remember that you will still pay your normal taxes and fees, only the $50 tag fee will be free.

The State of Alabama Department of Revenue needs about two months to put the Help End Epilepsy specialty car tag into production, so you will want to save the email with your official confirmation until we send an email notifying everyone that the State has the tags available for pick-up.

Where can I sign up for the Help End Epilepsy specialty car tag after the 1,000 have been met?
You can purchase your Help End Epilepsy specialty tag at any Alabama Department of Motor Vehicle location for a cost of $50 – and $41.25 of that will be donated to Children’s.
