MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Yesterday, April 26, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) announced the reopening of all the driver license offices in the state after the implementation of the new LEADS system.
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Driver License System, simply known as LEADS, brings Alabama up-to-date after the migration away from the decades-old former system.
“What an amazing accomplishment,” ALEA Secretary Hal Taylor said. “This is only the beginning of ALEA’s overall initiative to utilize technology to advance and provide enhanced quality service for the citizens of our great state.
According to Driver License Division Chief Jonathan Archer, a host of new quality service options are available to use including allowing individuals the ability to pre-apply for a driver license.
“I would like to highlight the innovation and commitment of both Colonel Jimmy Helms and Driver License Division Chief Jonathan Archer,” said Taylor. “If not for their steadfast leadership this endeavor would never been made possible.”
“The modernization of our Driver License System was one of the first tasks given to me by Secretary Taylor,” added Colonel Helms. “I would also like to remind everyone this is a brand-new system that our employees will be given their first opportunity to use in the coming days. We would like to ask that the citizens of our great state continue to use the same level of patience and understanding which were utilized over the course of the previous week.
