Georgia launches mail-in/fax services for older drivers
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Georgia drivers age 64 and older will be able to renew or replace their driver’s license without visiting a Department of Driver Services center in person.
A recent rule change allows the required vision exam to be submitted with their application remotely as long as it has been completed by a licensed optometrist or ophthalmologist.
Georgia Law O.C.G.A. § 40-5-33(4)(c)(1) requires that customers 64 years of age and older take and pass a vision exam prior to receiving or renewing a driver’s license.
All customers may also complete the vision exam at a DDS customer service center. Customers 64 years of age or older who cannot visit a location may also complete the online application or submit the following by mail or fax:
- Vision Report (DDS-MR-274) or a vision exam dated within the last two years
- Two proofs of physical Georgia residency
- The $32 License Fee with a credit card using the Credit Card Payment Authorization Form (DDS-100) by secure fax to (678) 413-8555.
Customers may also mail a money order, cashier’s check or personal check for payment to the following address:
Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS)
Attn: Central Issuance
PO Box 80447
Conyers, GA 30013
