Can I make an appointment for GA drivers license renewal? Georgia

Although appointments are available for certain Georgia drivers license transactions, you can't make an appointment to have your license renewed. Renewals are processed on a walk-in basis only. However, the license renewal process is fairly short. Unless your license has been expired for more than two years, you will not need to complete a written exam or driving test. A vision screening is only required if you are age 64 or older.

Georgia Drivers License Tips

Even though it's not possible to make an appointment for a Georgia drivers license renewal, there are a few tips you can use to make sure your transaction runs as smoothly as possible.

  • Whenever possible, avoid visiting a GA Division of Driver Services (DDS) Customer Service Center on the day following a holiday. This is typically the busiest time for license transactions.
  • Remember to bring acceptable payment for your drivers license fees. The GA DDS offices accept payment by cash, check, credit card, or money order.
  • If you are not a U.S. citizen, remember that Georgia law requires you to be able to provide proof of lawful presence in the United States before every license renewal. Make sure your immigration documents are in order before your visit to the DDS office.
  • Check to see if you are eligible to renew your drivers license by mail or online. Drivers under age 64 who are renewing Class C, CM, D, or DM Georgia drivers license and have no suspensions, revocations, or cancellations are generally able to take advantage of this time saving service. This process takes just five minutes and there is a $5 discount available.
  • If you have questions about how to renew your drivers license, please call the DDS at (678) 413-8400 or (866) 754-3687. Understanding the renewal process is the easiest way to make sure you don't spend any more time than necessary getting your Georgia drivers license.
