Drivers can no longer renew a license online until after they have gone through the new procedure, called Secure ID.
If your current license is Secure ID compliant, it will be marked with a small yellow star in the upper right-hand corner. To renew a license that is not Secure ID compliant, drivers will must show up in person at the DDS and bring at least one document to prove their identity – passport, citizenship or birth certificate, Social Security card, W-2, utility bill, bank statement or mortgage statement.
If your name has changed from the one shown on your primary identification document, you must bring your marriage certificate, marriage license application, divorce decree, adoption decree or other court order.
DDS only accepts immigration documentation from non-citizens that is in the name in which you want to have your driver’s license/ID issued.
New Georgia residents who are under 18 should call DDS customer service at 678-413-8400 to obtain information about requirements such as driver’s education classes.
Secure ID is designed to make IDs in Georgia more secure and put Georgia is compliance with the Federal Real ID Act of 2005.
