The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency announces possible closure of driver license offices throughout the state in a three phase process should the Legislature not fund the agency. According to Secretary of Law Enforcement Spencer Collier, the agency maintains 75 Driver License district and field offices across the state, but budget allocations do not cover costs. They operate with an $8.2 million deficit. Should the Legislature pass budget cuts, it will be necessary for the Licensing Division to close Driver License district and field offices statewide. Phase One would be to close 33 field offices on October 1st, Phase Two would be to close district offices leaving only 12 offices statewide on January 1st 2016, and Phase Three would be to move all operations to four offices located in Huntsville, Birmingham, Montgomery, and Mobile on March 1st 2016.
