Driver's License Renewals Will Require a Visit

The state's new rules for driver's license and state identification renewals will require residents to show proof of their identity in person starting July 1.


Need to renew your driver's license? Soon, you're going to have to take a trip to the Department of Driver Services office.

Anyone who needs to renew or apply for a driver's license will have to show up in person starting in July, according to new rules to tighten identification regulations.

Previously, people could renew their licenses online.

Governor's officials say the Secure ID program is a better way to guarantee the veracity of driver licenses and state identification cards.

Renewals will now take a photo identification, a Social Security card and proof of residence in the state.

Do you think there's a problem with fake driver's licenses in Georgia? Is this program a good idea?

Since a driver's license is both a principal photo ID and proof of residence, I'm not sure how those requirements will be met, especially the former. For most of us, the only photo ID we have is a driver's license. I'm not sure where else I would get one if I don't have a passport.
