Title VI and DDS

What is the Title VI Program?

The Title VI Program ensures the Georgia DDS's compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all related nondiscrimination authorities. The program will ensure that no person shall on the grounds of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, low-income, and limited English proficiency (LEP) be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any federally funded program or activity.

How Can I File a Discrimination Complaint?

Complaints shall be in writing, on a form provided by the Georgia Department of Driver Services ("DDS" or "the Department") and signed by the complainant(s) or his/her representative.

  • Complaints received by fax or e-mail will be acknowledged and processed, once the Complainant has been identified and his/her intent to proceed with the complaint has been established.
  • For allegations received verbally or by telephone, the complaint must be reduced to writing. A Title VI Program Complaint Form will be forwarded to the complainant for completion and signature. The completed form may be returned to the Title VI Program Coordinator for processing.
  • Within five (5) days of receipt of the complaint, The Title VI Program Coordinator will send an acknowledgement letter to the complainant and begin processing the complaint.
  • The Title VI Program Coordinator will notify the complainant of the outcome of the investigation.
