Driver license services temporarily suspended

In an effort to comply with federal regulations, the Alabama Department of Public Safety’s Driver License Division has scheduled a database conversion the last weekend of April, which will result in all systems – including online services – being shut down from 5 p.m. this Friday, April 25, to 8 a.m. on 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 (MVRs) and Alabama Uniform 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. This includes services in Franklin County.

To lessen the impact on the public, this particular weekend was selected since April 28 is a state holiday, and state offices already will be closed.

Normal service is expected to resume at 8 a.m. on April 30.
