An Alternate Mode is a Cybertronian's other transformation besides their Robot Modes whether it is a vehicle, an animal, and other specific things.

Transformers use these modes as disguises in order to conceal themselves from the human population. Most of the popular vehicle modes are cars, trucks, jets, tanks, etc. The part that allows them to transform into their alt modes is the T-Cog.

Transformers rarely had alternate modes when they first arrived on Earth and would scan a new mode, usually from whatever vehicles were nearby. Megatron and Shockwave retained their Cybertronian alternate modes.

After scanning an Earthly vehicle and reformatting accordingly, Smokescreen referred to it as his "v. mode"
