Governor’s Message

My Fellow Georgians,

Since 2011, Georgia has experienced growth in a number of areas, including population. In fact, we’ve moved from the tenth most populous state in the nation to the eighth, meaning more vehicles and people on our roads than ever before. Our highway system is a gateway for businesses across the country. Trucks hauling freight from Georgia on these highways are able to reach 80 percent of the U.S. population within two days. Because of our infrastructure system, Georgia has been called the “Super Hub of the Southeast.”

The safety of our drivers and the effective transportation of goods are vital to ensuring Georgia remains a great place to live and work. I encourage all Georgia motorists to practice safe and cautious driving habits daily. In order to keep Georgia’s roads and highways safe, motorists and their passengers should always practice wearing a seat belt, obey the speed limit, refrain from texting while driving and never drive under the influence.

The Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) is working hard to issue licenses, identification cards, and safety documents in an efficient and friendly manner. Employees at DDS have adopted several technology improvements, and with implementing these technologies we hope to make your time spent at DDS an enjoyable one. I encourage you to become more familiar with highway safety rules so we can keep our motorists and you safe.

Thank you for taking these measures to make Georgia’s roads and highways a safer place to travel.

Sincerely,

Nathan Deal
Governor

DDs Online Services

Be certain to take advantage of DDS Online Services and avoid an unnecessary trip to a customer service center.

Teens under 18 years of age are first issued a “restricted” Class D license which imposes passenger and curfew restrictions. Upon reaching 18 years of age, these drivers are eligible to exchange the Class D “restricted” license for a Class C “unrestricted” license. DDS mails a postcard reminder to those eligible teens to notify them of the Online service. After requesting a license upgrade online, the replacement license is mailed to the residence and arrives within 3 weeks.

DDS Online Services enable thousands of Georgia drivers to conduct many transactions via www.dds.ga.gov and eliminate a visit to a DDS Customer Service Center (CSC). This saves customers valuable time and money. DDS does not charge an additional fee for choosing Internet Services. A $5.00 discount may apply for eligible license types that are renewed on the internet.
