Georgia Driver License Laws

In Georgia, per the state's loitering statute, you must carry some form of identification on you at all times. This form of ID can be: a drivers license, learners permit, or a state identification (ID) card. All three of these forms of identification are issued by the Georgia Department of Driver Services (GA DDS).

An ID card can be issued to any person  who is a resident of Georgia and is old enough to sign their name, or make a mark indicating their legal signature can apply to the GA DDS for an identification card. . It looks like a drivers license, but is used for identification purposes only. A Georgia ID can be obtained from any DDS office. To apply for an ID, you must furnish proof of Georgia residency, surrender any other state ID cards or driver's licenses you have, show an acceptable form of personal identification that includes your full name and date of birth, and provide proof of your social security number.

For drivers who have just moved to Georgia, all new residents of Georgia who plan to operate a motor vehicle in this state must obtain a driver license within 30 days of establishing a permanent residence, at one of the DDS's Customer Service Centers. For drivers who are licensed in another state currently, or whose license has expired in less than two years, you are only required to take a vision exam. However, if your license has expired more than two years ago, you must take a written, road skills and vision test to obtain your license in Georgia.
