Apply For A New GA License

Please select the item that best fits your current license or permit:

  • Would you like to transfer an Out-of-State Driver's License for a Georgia License?

     An out-of-state license is defined as one issued by one of the other 49 states and the District of Columbia.

    Basic Requirements:

    1. A person surrendering  an out-of-state Learner's Permit for a Georgia Learner's permit must meet all the other licensing requirements for Georgia.
