DDS now offers license reinstatement online

The Department of Driver Services is offering new online services that could save you a trip to the DMV.

Customers can check their driving reinstatement eligibility, view, print or email a list of their specific reinstatement requirements and pay fees, DDS Commissioner Rob Mikell said Tuesday.

“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,” Mikell said in a release. “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.”

The DDS processes more than 200,000 license reinstatements per year, according to the release, and offering the process online should decrease wait times at service centers statewide.

In order to access the services, a customer must have a license that is suspended, revoked or canceled, have their Georgia’s driver’s license number and have or create a DDS online account.
