Sen. Hardie Davis Applauds New DDS Online Service

ATLANTA (November 13, 2013) – Sen. Hardie Davis (D – Augusta) is proud to announce a new online reinstatement service for Georgia drivers licenses.  The new service enables customers to check driving reinstatement eligibility; view, print or email a list of specific reinstatement requirements; pay fees and reinstate driving privileges without a visit or telephone call to the Department of Driver Services (DDS).

“A cornerstone of good governance is efficient and proactive ideas that bring essential services to the people of Georgia,” said Sen. Davis.  “DDS has brought together these two concepts by creating an online system that allows our citizens to reinstate a driver’s license from the comfort of their own home.  I am pleased that Georgia continues to seek innovative ways to serve its people.”

“A high priority has been to improve the license reinstatement process which is the most time consuming transaction for our DDS team members and customers,” Commissioner Rob Mikell commented.  “Not only will this online service save time for many who need to reinstate a license, but it should directly impact our service levels at all customer service centers,” he added.

To access the new online reinstatement services, a customer must:

  • Have a Georgia driver’s license that is suspended, revoked or cancelled
  • Know the Georgia driver’s license number
  • Create an online DDS services account to access personal suspension information

In certain situations, customers may automatically request that a new driver’s license or replacement license be directly mailed to them.  Those ineligible to request a replacement license online may still pay all fees and reinstate driving privileges online.

To access the new reinstatement services please visit the DDS website at or at
