CUMMING — The Georgia Department of Driver Services is reminding residents that many services are available online over the holidays, even when state offices are closed.
“[The department] continues to develop mobile options to save customers valuable time when conducting their licensing business,” Commissioner Rob Mikell said in a statement.
Many services can be completed at www.dds.ga.gov, including:
* Replacing a lost or stolen license and driving on the receipt until the card is delivered.
* Changing an address.
* Checking for any points on driving records.
* Viewing, printing or emailing details on suspensions or reinstatements.
* Paying any super speeder, reinstatement or pending suspension fines and/or fees.
* Checking license status, especially after paying tickets to verify that driving records have been updated.
* Requesting a motor vehicle report.
* Renewing online (for those with a gold star on their licenses and age 64 or younger).
* Submiting an online license application, which the department can have completed and waiting when you arrive.
All customer service centers, including the one off Pilgrim Mill Road near the Cumming Aquatic Center and Exit 16 at Ga. 400, will be closed through Monday. In addition, they also will be closed Jan. 1- 4, reopening on Jan. 5.
The first business day following a closure is typically busy statewide, so residents are asked to plan accordingly.
Wait times can be checked online by location at www.dds.ga.gov.
