For the second day in a row, Alabama has shut down its system for issuing driver licenses.
On Tuesday, Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) officials confirmed all ALEA-run Driver License Examining Offices, probate and license commissioners offices, and online services have been closed again for ongoing computer issues.
According to ALEA, a software update during the weekend has caused database issues. The vendor is working on the problem and will have the system up and running as soon as possible.
