Reinstatement influx at DDS

A new year and income tax season brings a seasonal influx of customers needing to reinstate their driving privileges at Department of Driver Services.  DDS Commissioner Rob Mikell reminds reinstatement customers of a way to save valuable time – the Agency’s new Online License Reinstatement Services available at www.dds.ga.gov.

 Online License Reinstatement enables customers to check their driving reinstatement eligibility, view, print or email a list of their specific reinstatement requirements, pay fees and reinstate driving privileges online – all without a visit or telephone call to DDS.  A recent enhancement to this program now enables eligible customers to request that a free replacement of their original license be mailed directly to them.  The license will be mailed within 7-10 business days, eliminating the need to visit the DDS in person.

To access the new reinstatement services please visit the DDS website at www.dds.ga.gov or at https://online.dds.ga.gov/onlineservices/account/login.aspx.
