Georgia Dept. of Driver Services (DDS) Launches Secure ID Program for GA Drivers License & ID Cards
Starting July 3, 2012, all Georgia residents who are applying for their first GA Drivers License (DL) and/or Identification Card (ID), and those who are renewing an existing GA DL/ID, or who are reinstating a suspended DL, will be issued a Secure ID.

A Secure ID ensures that Georgia will continue to produce the most secure Driver's License's (DL) and identification (ID) cards that our state has ever produced. It will also place Georgia in compliance with the Federal Real ID Act of 2005, which prohibits the federal government from accepting drivers licenses or IDs issued by non-compliant states to board a commercial flight or enter a federal building. The new Secure ID process will be phased-in with existing licenses and IDs remaining valid until the expiration date.

For more information on the new Secure ID, frequently asked questions and the DDS brochure click view the new requirements and this will take you to the documents.
