I have a a restricted driving permit in Illinois and was thinking of moving my family to Alabama. Is there a way to transfer my drivers permit to Alabama? Or what must I do to get driving privileges in Alabama with 3 duis 1 in 96, 1 in 97 and the last one in 2013?
You are (probably) eligible to hold an unrestricted driver license in the state of Alabama. The application process is to file a DL-1 with the Driver License Division of ALEA. At that point, your name and identifying information will be run through the National Driver Registry. If you are "flagged" in the system, you will most likely be denied an Alabama driver license. See, Code of Alabama, 1975, section 32-6-7 which states that an Alabama driver license may not be issued to any person presently suspended or revoked in another jurisdiction. If the suspension or revocation cannot be cleared, then you are probably eligible for a Welch hearing. [This is dependent upon the type and duration of the out of state removal order.] See the Avvo Guide that is available on-line on the Welch hearing process. Your best course of action is to retain the professional legal services of an attorney that is completely familiar will all aspects of Alabama driver license law and the process to obtain a Welch hearing.
