How to access this resource:
AVL first checks to see if you are physically located within the state of Alabama. If users travel or live out of state then they will need an AVL card to access AVL resources while geographically outside of Alabama. If you live near the state line, your IP address may be accidentally identified as a non-Alabama location, so you may need an AVL card just in case.
