HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Many people still need to get their STAR IDs.

Monday through Friday you can head to any of the main driver license office locations but you may not get in. One of our reporters tried to make an appointment this morning and found they wouldn't be able to get in until January 27.

Starting tomorrow morning, the driver's license office on 1115 Church Street in Huntsville will be open on Saturdays.

From 7 a.m.-3 p.m. they will take walk-ins only, first come, first serve.

The hope is that people who aren't able to take off work during the week can get the ID on Saturday.

Huntsville is the fourth city to get the extended hours.

You need to have the new STAR ID by October 2020.

If you head to the driver's license office tomorrow, the new STAR ID will cost you $36.25.
