After the Written Test
Once you are done with the written drivers exam, the next step is to pass a road test.

In order to avoid re-taking your road skills test, spend additional hours driving behind the wheel before scheduling an appointment at the Alabama DMV.
To be issued an AL driver’s license, all applicants must be at least 17 years old, and must hold their provisional license for at least six months.
