Talladega County Driver License Office to close next week for new system implementation

TALLADEGA, Ala. – Starting next Monday, April 18, the Talladega County Driver License Office will temporarily close in order to transition to a new and improved system.

The new system called LEADS, which stands for Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Driver License System, will replace the old system which has been the standard for the last two decades.

This statewide procedure will take a week to complete as the system is installed and all necessary data is transferred. All Driver License offices, including Talladega County’s, are expected to reopen on Tuesday, April 26.

“We understand that it may cause an inconvenience to some citizens that will not have full access of the Driver License Division’s resources and capabilities,” said Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) Secretary Hal Taylor, “but we assure everyone the result will be impressive, providing significant improvements for both citizens as well as Driver License employees across the state.”

During the temporary closure, ALEA Driver License examiners will not be available to administer Class D and CDL road skills tests.

County offices will remain open during the transitional period but strictly for revenue and probate services.

“Citizens will have access to a variety of new options that they didn’t have before,” Talladega County Revenue Commissioner Cindy Pennington said. “I think this is something that’s needed to happen for a while.”

LEADS will offer multiple new options including allowing individuals the ability to pre-apply for an Alabama Driver License and enter all necessary information prior to visiting a local office.
