Ga. drivers wait up to 4 hours to renew licenses

ATLANTA (AP) -- Continuing delays and long lines are frustrating Georgia motorists trying to get their driver licenses renewed.

Long lines of up to four hours are continuing, despite recent assurances from state officials that wait times would be less this week.

At some state offices, drivers hoping to renew their licenses were being turned away amid a crush of people.

Georgia Department of Driver Services spokeswoman Susan Sports says the agency has expanded the list of acceptable documents it would accept to prove residency and identity and is moving employees to high-demand areas. She said wait times are still unacceptable.

House Speaker David Ralston blamed the state agency for inadequately preparing for a new law requiring the additional documentation.

It must be improving. Last week it was 8 hrs. What a disgrace just to get a license renewal. Don't they already have your ID info on renewals?

Leave it to the government to create more red tape for a simple license renewal. How hard is it to fake a birth certificate in the 21st Century? I'm sure they will blame it on 911 or illegal immigration. Punish the law abiding people.
