What You Should Know About ALEA’s Driver License Office Closures
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency issued a reminder regarding upcoming temporary closures.
According to a press release, ALEA will launch a new modernized driver's license system that requires a temporary weeklong office closure. The closure is to ensure a successful and thorough transition to the new system.
"We understand that it may cause an inconvenience to some citizens that will not have full access of the Driver License Division’s resources and capabilities," said ALEA Secretary Hal Taylor.
"We assure everyone the result will be impressive, providing significant improvements for both citizens as well as Driver License employees across the state."
The closures were originally announced back in March of this year and will affect Driver License Examining Offices across the state of Alabama from Monday, April 18 to Wednesday, April 25.
During the temporary closure, ALEA Driver License Examiners will be available to administer Class D and CDL Road Skills Tests. However, citizens who completed these tests will not be issued a copy of their license until offices are reopened. County offices will remain open during the transitional period but strictly for revenue and probate services. Once LEADS is live, citizens will have access to a variety of new options and enhanced services such as allowing individuals the ability to pre-apply for an Alabama Driver License and enter all necessary information prior to visiting a local office.
Additionally, ALEA will offer expanded online services including but not limited to:
- Ability to update their addresses
- Ability to pay and reinstate their licenses
- Ability to upload U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Medical Cards
- Ability to view Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Hazmat background checks
- Ability to issue duplicate licenses to eligible foreign nationals
- Ability to pre-apply for individuals who are requesting an Alabama License for the first time
