Gov. Brian Kemp and Department of Driver Services (DDS) Commissioner Spencer R. Moore have announced an emergency operations plan for the agency which includes a 60-day extension for many Georgia residents with a driver’s license or state ID card nearing expiration.
In addition to the extended expiration dates, the DDS is closing all of its customer-facing service centers until further notice.
All valid Georgia driver’s licenses and state-issued identification cards with an expiration date between now and June 30, 2020, will receive an extension by a period of 60 days.
Notices will be mailed and new cards will be printed and mailed directly to customers.
Eligible types include identification cards, commercial (CDL) and non-commercial driver’s licenses, limited permits and driving permits.
Medical certifications and CDL endorsements will be extended along with the CDL licenses.
Customers who need to reinstate their license or upgrade from a Class D to a Class C license should utilize DDS Online Services at www.dds.georgia.gov.
Customers who are new to Georgia will not be served during the closure period and should continue using their credentials from their former state. A plan to reopen safety for these customers is being developed.
