To obtain and Alabama driver license, you must first visit the Social Security Administration office to apply for a U.S. Social Security Number (SSN) and Card. Students attending a sponsored U.S. Military Training and Education Program are authorized to apply for a SSN. Dependents are NOT authorized a SSN but must still visit the office to receive paperwork before applying for a driver's license.
In the U.S., a SSN is tied to a citizen's financial credit and many companies, including a car dealership, will request a review of credit history before providing any good or service to an individual (to ensure the individual will pay their bills). So, having a SSN may make it easier to arrange your business affairs.
