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

(1) to help you qualify for a Georgia driver’s license; and

(2) to help you become a safer driver.

This guide is designed to provide parents and teens with information to obtain a Class D license. Other manuals are available for commercial drivers, noncommercial drivers, and motorcycle operators.

Regulations in red are new this year.

Purple text indicates an important note.
