2002: Driver Not Found (Georgia Driver was assumed based on data sent to DDS.)

- leave the license number field blank
- provide the same state code in the license number code field as the address state code field
Example 1: Court submits a Conviction/Citation, FTA or Withdrawal electronically. The court enters a Georgia license number that doesn’t match the name and D.O.B being transmitted. The court will receive error code 2002.

- If the license number is unavailable or unknown, transmit leaving the license field blank.
Example2: Court transmits an out-of-state license number & address but enters GA in the license number code field. The court will receive error code 2002.
- The court needs to verify and retransmit records with out-of-state license code information.
- Ex: Alabama license state code would be AL.

Solution: Verify the license state code is listed correctly, and check to make sure the state code is listed in the address field.
Example 1: Court submits a GA license with the license state code field blank. GECPS will process and kick back error code 2003. The court needs to:
- add the license code to the license state code field
- retransmit the correction within the 10-day requirement in order for it to be processed on time.
Example 2: Court submits a out of state license and leaves the state code field blank in the address. GECPS will process and kick back error code 2003.

Example 1: Court submits speeding ticket with posted speed of 85 mph and the actual speed has 0 or field is blank. GECPS will process and kickback error code 2052. The court needs to correct by
- adding the actual speed the customer was driving ( i.e. 90mph in a 85mph zone)

2878: FTA Release/Withdrawal doesn't match any FTA on record.
Solution: FTA release or withdrawal must match an FTA on record. Check the trial date, violation date, violation/offense code, etc. to ensure the withdrawal/release matches the FTA submitted.
Example 1: Court sends an FTA with an offense code of 40-6-391 (driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol) and the offense is amended to 40-6-390 (reckless driving). When the release/withdrawal is transmitted, the FTA should be released with violation/offense code 40-6-391 or the court will receive error code 2878 (FTA withdrawal or release doesn’t match any FTA on customer’s record). Please be sure to submit the amended offense to DDS if reportable.
Example 2: Court transmits an FTA withdrawal or release, but never transmitted the FTA. The court will receive error code 2878 (FTA withdrawal or release doesn’t match any FTA on customer’s record) due to the FTA wasn’t transmitted to customer’s record.
