Getting Your License

What do I bring to the DDS to get my driver license?

The state of Georgia offers a fantastic resource that allows you to find out what documents you need to bring with you when you go to the DDS to get your license. It will list all of the different options and combinations of documents and even show pictures of them! You can find the Build-Your-Own-Checklist here.
