The Department of Driver Services (DDS) Board of Directors would like to remind teens that driving in Georgia is a privilege that carries many responsibilities. Please strive to become a safe, sober, and dependable driver to ensure that this privilege will not be lost. This manual has two main purposes:

(1) to inform the young people of this state of the dangers involved in consuming alcohol or drugs in connection with the operation of a motor vehicle; and

(2) to emphasize the importance of highway safety and crash prevention.

Other manuals are available for commercial drivers, noncommercial drivers, motorcycle operators, and teens learning to drive.
