GA Department of Driver Services (DDS) Says Visit in the Afternoon for Faster Service
The best time to visit a GA Department of Driver Services (DDS) customer service center is during the middle to late afternoon hours. Expect longer wait times in the morning from opening until 10:00 A.M.
Other Tips for Optimal Service
- Tuesday is always the busiest day statewide for service as DDS is closed on Monday.
- Be prepared by visiting www.dds.georgia.gov and submit your form for License/ID/Permit service before arriving
- Avoid the morning hours.
- The middle of the week during the middle of the day is the best time for optimal service.
- Always check dds.georgia.gov for online services like license renewals, replacements, and address changes. Why visit when you don’t have to?
