State Law REQUIRES that you first ask to see the applicant's driver's license
Bona Fide Alabama Residents must present an Alabama driver's license or non-driver's ID to any local license agent. Or, in the case of Bona Fide residents with no driver's license or non-driver's ID, those residents must go to their local probate office or license commissioner with proofs of residency.
It is illegal for a resident of another state to be issued a resident license.
You are considered a Non-Resident IF you have an Alabama Driver’s License or Non-Driver’s ID and possess a valid driver’s license from another state.
Applicants with multiple driver’s license are not considered Alabama residents and must use their out-of-state driver’s license to purchase non-resident licenses.
