AL expands online driver license services

Press Release  

MONTGOMERY — Requests for license hearings by drivers who face removal of their driving privilege may now be submitted and scheduled online.

Hearings may be scheduled through the Alabama Department of Public Safety's Web site, http://dps.alabama.gov. Requests for hearings also may continue to be submitted via postal mail.

Public Safety Director Col. J. Christopher Murphy said the department is offering online scheduling of hearings as an added convenience and service to the public. "We are committed to improving efficiency and customer service in all aspects of driver licensing," said DPS Director Col. J. Christopher Murphy.

Murphy said Public Safety began offering online scheduling of road skills tests in 2008 and continues to look for ways to improve customer service. "Enhanced online services help us serve the public better," said Murphy. "This new online appointments option offers a quick, convenient method of scheduling a driver license hearing."

Driver license hearings are available to licensed drivers at risk of license suspension or revocation.

Drivers facing removal of their driving privilege are notified in writing of the pending action and have the option to request a hearing.

In 2009, the Department of Public Safety held 2,586 driver license hearings. A total of 333,241 licenses were suspended, and 276,877 licenses were revoked in 2009.
