MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. - Wednesday morning, law enforcement leaders and state senator Arthur Orr (R) presented a resolution for what has been a headache in the State of Alabama -- the long wait to get your driver's license upgraded to the Star ID card.

The Morgan County Courthouse will drop wait times by opening its doors an hour earlier each day, including some Saturdays. ALEA's spokesman Curtis Summerville said five more locations will open on Saturdays come December.

"An hour may not seem much to a whole lot of people but this hour will certainly make a difference for a lot of people. I've people before say if I just had an additional hour, an additional 30 minutes before I went to work I could probably come in and get my driver's license. Well, this will certainly help those people."
