State shutting down driver’s license system for work


The Alabama Department of Public Safety will shut down its driver’s license system for database conversion beginning at 5 p.m. April 25. The system is expected to be back up and running at 8 a.m. April 30.

The Department of Public Safety says state offices won’t be able to issue new or renewed licenses during the shutdown. In addition, motor vehicle records and crash reports will be offline.  The state says the database conversion is required to comply with federal regulations.

The shutdown will affect probate offices, license commissioners’ offices and other agencies and businesses that involve Alabama driver’s license transactions or reviews.
