Governor’s Message

Brought to you by:

My Fellow Georgians,

As Governor, I respectfully challenge Georgia motorists to understand the rules of the road and practice safe driving habits. If all drivers and their passengers fasten their seat belts, refrain from driving under the influence and texting while driving, and obey the speed limit, fatalities on Georgia’s roads would be greatly reduced.

I encourage parents to assist teens in becoming safe drivers by setting the example and helping them study the traffic laws and safety rules included in this manual. This time spent with your child will help them develop a solid foundation of good driving habits.

Because your time is valuable, DDS has adopted new technology (i.e. self-service kiosks, online application, etc.) and process improvements for more efficient customer service delivery. Employees will strive to meet your needs in a more efficient way.

Thank you making Georgia’s roads and highways a safer place to travel.


Nathan Deal, Governor
