Are the steps for renewing a GA permit the same as drivers license renewal? Georgia


A Georgia learners permit is available for drivers who are at least 15 years of age and have successfully completed a written exam testing their knowledge of road signs and road rules. The permit allows a teen to practice driving while accompanied by an adult.

Renewing Your Learners Permit

Since your learners permit is valid for 24 months and you are eligible to apply for an intermediate license at age 16, most Georgia teens will not need to ever worry about the permit renewal process. If you do need to renew your permit, however, you must visit a Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) Customer Service Center and pay a $10 fee. Permit holders are not eligible for online or mail renewals because of the requirements associated with the Graduated Driver License program for teen drivers.

Adult Drivers

Once you reach 18, you are no longer covered under the provisions of the Teenage & Adult Driver Responsibility Act (TADRA). This means you do not need a learners permit or completion of a driver education course in order to get your license. All you need to do is pass the written exam and driving test.
