Study for the DDS permit test with unlimited practice tests in-app. It's important that you prepare for the written exam before heading to the DDS. You'll need to get at least 21 out of 30 questions correct, and you have unlimited chances to pass the test. If you fail, you may retake the test again as many times as you need.
Head to the DDS to ace your written test and get your permit! There is no need to make an appointment with your local DDS. However, you'll want to make sure you allow more than 30 minutes of time before the location closes for the day. You will be required to take two tests: the Road Rules Test and the Road Signs Test. Each test consists of 20 questions and it's required that you score a 75% or above. You'll also need to provide a fingerprint and signature, pass a vision exam, and take a picture. With your Georgia learner permit in hand, you're ready to start driving school.
You may begin a six-hour course with a private traffic school to get some behind-the-wheel training. This is optional, however. The DDS provides a free Parent/Teen Driving Guide, which offers suggestions for in-car lessons. A licensed friend or relative is also a suitable teacher. All new drivers are required to complete 40 hours of this training, with 6 of those hours being at night.
After one year and one day of getting your permit, and when you're at least 16 years old, head to the DDS to take the driving test and get your license! A Driving Experience Affidavit (DDS-7) must be completed to affirm that you have completed the required 40 hours of behind-the-wheel practice, which includes the 6 hours of nighttime driving. To schedule a road test appointment you must call ahead or register online. To save some time, you may also pre-apply online within 30 days of your appointment date If you fail your driving test, you must wait one day before you can take it again. If you fail a subsequent you must wait one week to retest. Your new photo driver license will arrive in the mail. Until then, always have your interim license with you when you drive. In the meantime, you can't transport any passengers that are not part of your immediate family; after six months you are permitted only one non-relative under 21, and after six more months, three non-relatives under 21. You also can't drive between 12am and 5am. After you turn 18, these restrictions don't apply.
