DDS Mail-in Renewal Options

Thank you for your interest in renewing your Georgia driver’s license, permit, or ID card. The Georgia Department of Driver Services offers renewal by mail options under limited circumstances for U.S. citizen customers who are unable to renew their license in person.

The following customers may utilize this option:

  • Customers stationed out of state in the military, and their dependents stationed with them
  • Customers attending school out of the State of Georgia, and their dependents who are with them
  • Customers temporarily working out of state, and their dependents who are with them
  • Customers who are physically incapacitated and unable to visit a DDS Customer Service Center

The application package is included here. Please follow the instructions to complete the forms and submit them to DDS for processing.

Please note: Processing of applications usually takes about ten (10) days once we receive your complete application package. Applications are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. We recommend that you submit your completed package to DDS at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of your license.
