New Year brings reinstatement influx at Department of Driver Services

Posted: Updated:
Columbus, Georgia -  The Department of Driver Services (DDS) is reminding customers of the agency's new Online License Reinstatement Services as a way to save time with this service. The department says a new year and income tax season brings a seasonal influx of customers needing to reinstate their driving privileges. More than 7,000 customers have utilized the new service since it was unveiled in November 2013. 

“A high priority has been to improve the license reinstatement process which is the most time consuming transaction for our team members,” said Commissioner Mikell. “Having customers choose to reinstate and request a free replacement license online will directly affect the wait times at DDS customer service centers.”


Online License Reinstatement enables 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 – all without a visit or telephone call to DDS.  A recent enhancement to this program now enables eligible customers to request that a free replacement of their original license be mailed directly to them.  The license will be mailed within 7-10 business days eliminating the need to visit the DDS in person.

To access the new reinstatement services please visit the DDS website at www.dds.ga.gov or at https://online.dds.ga.gov/onlineservices/account/login.aspx .

    Instead of destroying them, The Columbus Police Department is selling hundreds of seized guns. Some of the guns were used in crimes, others were found on the road- all of them now headed back to the streets.“The policeman in me says I’d rather not see that gun back on the street, we’ve already gotten a hold of it once, but you’ve got 550 guns- will every one of them be used in a crime? No. Some of them will be sold to someone that will enjoy the use of that gun for the rest of their life and ...
