8/20/2013

Commissioner Rob Mikell, Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS), recently reported that the most recent “Ask DDS Day” was a big success.   The agency recently hosted its fifth annual “Ask DDS Day” on August 7, 2013 at the Georgia Public Safety Training Center in Forsyth, Georgia.  Over 180 guests from various driver safety programs attended this year’s event making it a success and the largest turnout to date.

Commissioner Mikell said “It is the goal of annual event is to cultivate and maintain open lines of communication with driver safety programs throughout the state. This meeting is the perfect opportunity for School owners, Instructors, Third-party examiners, Chauffeurs, and Ignition Interlock Providers to receive information on a number of strategic initiatives, new legislation and receive program updates,” he added. 

Attendees had an opportunity to ask and receive answers on any item of interest. A number of presentations were made on subjects pertinent to all business partners including Real ID, online medical certification for commercial drivers and the Georgia Veteran’s driver’s license.  Of particular interest to the group were the newly revamped Georgia Driver’s Manuals. The new layout allows for the placement of paid advertising which covers a portion of production costs and will ultimately save the state hundreds of thousands of dollars in printing costs.
