Emergency Message - On April 1, 2020, DDS will be providing limited Commercial Driver Services by appointment only.
Notice to all Law Enforcement Agencies
The GA Department of Driver Services (DDS) emergency operations plan during this public health crisis includes a 120-day extension for many Georgians with a driver’s license and/or ID Card nearing expiration.
- All valid GA driver’s licenses and ID cards with an expiration date between March 14, 2020 and June 30, 2020 will receive a 120-day extension. Those eligible will receive a notice that the new card will be delivered directly to them.
- Eligible types include: ID cards, commercial (CDL) and non-commercial driver’s licenses, limited permits and driving permits.
- Medical Certifications and CDL endorsements will be extended along with the CDL licenses.
- Many licensing services can be completed online at www.dds.georgia.gov or by downloading the mobile DDS 2 GO app.
The actual expiration date may be different from the expiration date shown on a driver’s license or ID card. Please check GCIC and also note that unforeseen system changes may cause delays in record updates. Therefore, we ask that law enforcement use discretion as updates to customers’ driving records may not be reflected during this emergency period.
DDS appreciates your hard work and dedication during this uncertain time. Please stay safe!
