3 driver license offices to open Saturdays.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Three state driver license offices will now be open on Saturdays.
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency says offices in Birmingham, Mobile and Opelika will open on Saturdays beginning April 6.
Law Enforcement Secretary Hal Taylor says the change is being made to accommodate people who have difficulty leaving school or work during the standard work week.
The offices on Saturday will be available for first driver license issuances, out-of-state transfers and driving tests.
Taylor says the agency will monitor Saturday activity at the three locations with hopes to expand Saturday service to other offices.
ALEA is also expanding hours at field offices in 21 Alabama counties.
The agency says people are encouraged to confirm the office hours before they visit.
