ALEA invites public to learn more about new driver license system through online meetings

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Prior to the April 26 launch of its new state-of-the-art system, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) will conduct two online meetings to provide Alabama citizens an opportunity to ask questions about the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Driver License System, also known as LEADS.

ALEA has scheduled two Microsoft Teams meetings for the following days:

Southern half of Alabama: Monday, April 4, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Northern half of Alabama: Wednesday, April 6, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

For the local area, Coosa and Tallapoosa counties are included in the Southern meeting while Talladega and Shelby counties are a part of the Northern half.

ALEA would like to remind the public that its driver license examining offices will close statewide, and its online services will be temporarily unavailable from April 18 to April 25 for the new system to be installed along with the current system’s data to be converted into 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,” said ALEA secretary Hal Taylor. “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.”

During the temporary closure, however, Class D and CDL road skill tests will still be administered. Citizens who complete road skills tests will not be issued a copy of their license until offices are reopened.
