Anyone planning to conduct business with the state of Alabama involving their driver’s license will be out of luck for a few days beginning late Friday afternoon.
The Alabama Department of Public Safety’s Driver License Division has scheduled a database conversion which will result in all systems, including online services, being shut down from 5 p.m. Friday, April 25, to 8 a.m. Wednesday, April 30.
During that time, driver license examining offices across the state will be unable to issue, renew or reinstate driver licenses and non-driver identification cards. In addition, access to motor vehicle records and crash reports will be offline.
This temporary system shutdown also will affect probate offices, license commissioners’ offices and other agencies and businesses that involve Alabama driver license transactions or reviews.
State officials say the move is an effort to comply with federal regulations.
More information is available from the Alabama Department of Public Safety website.
