Obtaining A Georgia Driver’s License
To obtain a driver license in Georgia you must be at least 16 years old. A valid learner’s license must be held for one year and a day from the date of issuance. If you are new to Georgia, you must apply for a driver’s license within 30 days of becoming a resident. All customer service stations can transfer your license. You will be required to surrender your out of state license. If you do not yet have a license, you will need to get your learner’s permit and pass a state approved driver’s education course.
Moving To Georgia
If you have a license that is valid or has been expired for less than 2 years, you can transfer that license if you are at least 18 years old. You will need to have your out-of-state license, social security number, proof of Georgia residency, identity, age and citizenship to get your license. A complete list of acceptable documents can be found online or in the $CSLINK.
