MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama has shut down its system for issuing driver licenses for a second straight day.

A statement from the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency says a vendor is working to fix a problem caused by a computer software update over the weekend. The shutdown Tuesday follows a two-hour shutdown that occurred Monday.

The statement says the problem involves a database.

The agency says both local license offices and online services are temporarily out of commission.
