As you know, Oct. 1, 2020, is the federal deadline for REAL ID-compliant identification to board commercial domestic flights and to enter certain federal facilities. We are working to ensure those who may need STAR IDs (our state’s version of REAL ID) have ample time to obtain one prior to October of next year.

Lori Jhons of Governor Kay Ivey’s staff shared a link to the Blount County Probate website featuring the Governor’s STAR ID message. (See below.)  In addition, we have attached the latest version of the STAR ID flier with details concerning first issuance. The Covington County Probate Office will still continue to offer drivers license renewals and duplicates. For the STAR ID, You must visit the driver's license examiners office located on the right outside of the Court house.


Here are those links:

September Cancer Awareness Month

September 17, 2019

If you have been in the Probate office recently, you may have noticed our tag display board has been changed. On display for this month, we have the Mike Slive Prostate Foundation tag, the Curing Childhood Cancer tag, and the Drive out Ovarian Cancer tag. Remember, these tags fall under the specialty tag rate. The first time a customer purchases these plates, they will be charged $55.00 extra, each year after this a customer will pay $50.00 extra. Many people are curious as to where this money goes when it is collected. The first year, $5.00 of the collected amount will go to the Alabama Department of Revenue. The rest of the collected amount goes to the Foundations that each tag sponsors:

Prostate Cancer tag funds cutting edge prostate cancer research in Alabama.

Curing Childhood Cancer tag are distributed to the UAB department of Pediatric/Children's Alabama to be used for medical research expenses.

Drive out Ovarian Cancer are distributed to the Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation for research at UAB hospital
