Prior to the April 26 launch of its new state-of-the-art system, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) Driver License Division will conduct an online community meeting via Microsoft Teams.

The meeting will be geared toward providing the citizens of Alabama an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Driver License System, simply known as LEADS.

“Not only will LEADS consolidate multiple legacy driver license systems into one integrated, modern system, but it will further protect Alabama citizens’ personal information and enhance our customer service. This project has taken a tremendous amount of dedication from ALEA’s Driver License employees and is yet another example of our Agency’s mission of providing quality service for all as well as a continued focus on improving communication and technology,” said ALEA Secretary Hal Taylor.

ALEA’s Driver License Division has scheduled a Microsoft Teams meeting for the southern half of Alabama Monday, April 4, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

With the LEADS launch scheduled for April 26, the Agency reminds the public its Driver License Examining Offices must close statewide, and its online services will be temporarily unavailable from April 18 to April 25. This will allow for the new system to be installed along with the current system’s data to be converted into LEADS.

During the temporary closure, however, ALEA Driver License Examiners will be available to administer Class D and CDL Road Skills Tests during the temporary closure. Please note that citizens who complete road skills tests will not be issued a copy of their license until offices are reopened. County offices will remain open during the transitional period but strictly for revenue and probate services.

The southern half of Alabama includes Mobile, Baldwin, Escambia, Conecuh, Monroe, Clarke, Washington, Choctaw, Butler, Covington, Coffee, Geneva, Dale, Houston, Henry, Crenshaw, Pike, Barbour, Wilcox, Marengo, Dallas, Perry, Sumter, Greene, Hale, Bibb, Tuscaloosa, Pickens, Chilton, Autauga, Lowndes, Coosa, Elmore, Montgomery, Tallapoosa, Macon, Bullock, Chambers, Lee, Russell, and Macon counties.
