Georgia Driver Services Prepares for Reinstatement Influx

Each year, income tax season brings an influx of customers to reinstate their driving privileges using their refunds at the Department of Driver Services (DDS). DDS Commissioner Bert Brantley reminds reinstatement customers of a way to save valuable time – the Agency’s Online License Reinstatement Services available at

“Online 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,” said Commissioner Brantley.

Eligible customers may 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.

Online Reinstatement saves those who choose to use it time and money.  It also helps improve customer service for those that must visit a DDS center in person. “The license reinstatement process is the most time consuming transaction for our team members,” said Commissioner Brantley. “Having customers choose to reinstate and request a free replacement license online will directly affect the wait times at DDS customer service centers.”

DDS continues to develop mobile options to provide all customers access to the most convenient licensing services.  In addition to reinstating a license, customers can request an address change, replace a lost license and/or obtain a copy of their driving history online.  For a complete list of online services, including the option to submit the required paperwork before visiting DDS, please visit or
