If you survived summer vacation, but your Georgia driver’s license did not, the Department of Driver Services (DDS) offers a quick and secure online option for having it replaced!  Customers should visit the DDS website at www.dds.georgia.gov, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to order a replacement card saving valuable time and money.

“We know that your time is valuable, so why come in to a center if you don’t have to?” asked DDS Commissioner Spencer R. Moore.  “A replacement license (or ID) is typically received within 10 days. DDS provides a receipt that you can print and legally drive with, eliminating any reason to visit in person for this service.”

DDS will use your stored photo to produce a replacement license and mail it to your address on file. Many customers do not realize that the printed receipt, printed during your DDS Online Services Transaction, serves as temporary proof of the replaced Georgia license or permit. Customers may continue to legally drive until the replacement arrives.

“While we are excited to serve Georgians, data tells us more than half of our visitors could have performed their service online,” Commissioner Moore added.

Being able to drive using the online receipt until the updated license is received should provide customers a stronger level of confidence in using DDS Online Services to replace a license.  Plus, online replacement of a license or ID also has the added benefits of a five dollar discount plus saving gasoline and absences from work and/or school.

For customers who must visit in person, please visit the DDS website at www.dds.georgia.gov to complete the required paperwork before arriving to ensure better service when you arrive.
