Car tag renewal, maybe more could be coming to Hoover Met
This is not an official State of Alabama license plate. For illustrative purposes only.
During an October city council meeting, Jefferson County Commissioner Jimmie Stephens and Mayor Gary Ivey announced that on Nov. 3, the Hoover Met will become a full-service satellite courthouse.
The tag office at the Hoover Met currently handles only tag renewals. Stephens said this change will help with parking issues downtown and makes sense with the large number of car dealerships in the city of Hoover.
“People have been having trouble parking downtown,” Stephens said. “Now, if you can’t find an open spot at the Hoover Met, then I don’t know what to tell you. We are excited about this partnership with Hoover.”
Stephens said the courthouse will be able to eventually handle drivers licenses, but for now the cost is too high.
“We will attempt to do drivers licenses when we are able to get new cameras,” Stephens said.
