How do I update my Georgia driver license if I currently have an expired license? Georgia

The state of Georgia considers driving with an expired license a misdemeanor punishable with up to a $1,000 fine.

Expired Licenses for Georgia Residents

Drivers with a Georgia license that has been expired for two years or more are required to pass the written exam, driving test and vision screening. In the event your Georgia drivers license has expired, but you hold a valid out-of-state license, you will only be required to pass a vision test.

Expired License for New Georgia Residents

You must apply for a Georgia driver license within 30 days of becoming a state resident. All Customer Service Centers can transfer an out of state license to a Georgia license. Appointments are offered at Decatur-South DeKalb Mall, North Cobb-Canton Rd in Marietta, Lithonia, Lawrenceville and Locust Grove.

If your out-of-state license is more than two years expired, you will be required to pass a written exam, driving test and vision screening to get a replacement license. However, if you don’t have the out-of-state license in your possession, you must provide an original letter of clearance or certified driving record from the state that issued the license. The letter or driving record must be dated within 30 days and include all licensing information.
