How do you renew a driver's license in Georgia?
My Georgia driver’s license will expire in two months and I’d like to renew it before it does to avoid any hassles. Can I do it from home, or do I have to go to the DMV?

Renewing your driver’s license before it expires is a great way to stay on top of things—and avoid fines for an expired license. There are three ways to renew your Georgia driver’s license: online/by mobile app, in person, or by mail.
Bear in mind that to renew your Georgia driver’s license, you must have:
- Your current driver’s license
- One original document verifying your identity (SSN card, mail, etc.)
- One original document proving U.S. citizenship
- Renewal fee (credit card or cash)
- Completed renewal application
To renew your driver’s license online or by mobile app:
- Go to the Georgia Department of Driver Services (GDDS) online services website or visit the DDS 2 GO Mobile App and log in or create an account
- Follow the renewal instructions
To renew your driver’s license in person:
- Visit your local Georgia DMV office
- Complete and submit the form
- Take a new photo
- If 64 or older, pass a vision exam
U.S. citizens who cannot renew their license in person or online may be able to do so by mail. Visit the Georgia DM website to see if you are eligible.
