Opelika, Clanton driver license offices changing

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Department of Public Safety is making changes at its driver license examining offices in Clanton and Opelika to improve service.

Public Safety Director Chris Murphy says the Opelika office will start scheduling appointments for driver's license exams beginning Friday.

Opelika will be joining Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa in scheduling exams.

The Opelika office at the USA Town Outlet Center will continue to accept walk-in applicants on a first-come, first-served basis.

Murphy says the department is also increasing the number of days that the Clanton licensing exam office is open from two to four per week.

The office at the Chilton County Courthouse will be open Monday through Thursday.
