Georgia driver's license reinstatement now available online

People needing to reinstate their Georgia drivers license can now do so online.

The new service, announced by Department of Driver Services Commissioner Rob Mikell, allows customers to check their driving reinstatement eligibility, view, print or email a list of their specific reinstatement requirements, pay fees and reinstate driving privileges online, instead of forcing a trip to the office.

“A high priority has been to improve the license reinstatement process which is the most time consuming transaction for our DDS team members and customers,” Mikell said. “Not only will this online service save time for many who need to reinstate a license, but it should directly impact our service levels at all customer service centers,” he added.

The new process applies to people who have had a state driver’s license suspended, revoked or cancelled. The customer must know their license number and have a create an online account to access suspension information.

Each year, the department processes more than 200,000 reinstatements, and the customer contact center handles more than 600,000 calls about reinstatements. Often a reinstatement requires more than one visit, a press release said.
