MONTGOMERY -- The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) Secretary Hal Taylor announced today, Oct. 29, the agency will begin Nov. 2 to offer Saturday operations at the Madison County Driver License Examining Office, the fourth location to open Saturdays since this past March.
Earlier this year, Secretary Taylor said, “We regularly re-evaluate our services and work to accommodate our customers, the citizens of Alabama,” Secretary Taylor said. “A number of individuals find it difficult to take off time from work or school during the standard work week. We hope to make it more convenient by adding Saturday service at our Driver License offices in Birmingham, Opelika and Mobile.”
Saturday services will be available for first driver license issuances including STAR IDs, out-of-state transfers, as well as knowledge and road skills tests. Although reinstatement services will not be part of this new initiative, customers with such issues are welcome to handle business by phone during regular hours Monday through Friday. The number is 334.242.4400.
Secretary Taylor said the agency will monitor Saturday activity at the four locations and hopes to expand to include other Driver License locations.
