The Georgia Department of Driver Services has suspended road testing for driver's licenses indefinitely and closed some of its customer service centers amid the coronavirus outbreak.

On Wednesday the department announced it has suspended “all road testing, non-commercial and commercial, until further notice.” In addition, DDS said some customer service centers have closed because of workforce shortages.

The agency encouraged customers to visit its web site or download its mobile app – DDS 2 GO – to handle licensing needs.

Last week the department announced it would grant Georgia residents age 60 and over a 120-day extension on their driver's licenses.
