Persons who have never had an Alabama Driver License or ID card must apply at the Drivers License Examiner's Office.
||Alexander City Office
395 Lee Street
Alexander City, AL
Persons applying for a first driver license or for a Alabama identification card must provide two forms of identification. Contact the Examiner for a list of acceptable forms of identification. Persons applying for a driver license will be administered a written examination, an eye exam, and a road test.
Persons moving into Alabama from another State may surrender the out-of-State license and take an eye examination. Persons wishing to obtain a identification card (including those with suspended Alabama driver licenses) must first apply at the Examiners Office. An administrative fee of $5.00 is required for each application.
To complete the application process, applicants will receive an issuance card that must be taken to one of the local Probate Offices. The fee for a license or identification is $36.25. A temporary license or ID card, with a picture, will be issued at the Probate Office. The original will be mailed at a later date from the Alabama Department of Public Safety. Persons not receiving their licenses within 60 days should contact the Department of Public Safety at 334-242-4400.
Persons with suspended driver license must apply to the Department of Public Safety for re-instatement. Upon payment of re-instatement fees, the applicant may obtain a duplicate driver license at any Probate Office in Alabama.
Note: Two forms of identification are required.
