Georgia Department of Revenue(DOR) and Georgia Department of Driver Services(DDS) will soon be performing a system upgrade of the Driver Record and Integrated Vehicle Enterprise System, and are urging customers to plan ahead.
During this system upgrade, the DRIVES (Driver Record and Integrated Vehicle Enterprise System), including DDS Online Services and DRIVES e-Services, will be unavailable beginning Thursday, December 30, 2021 at 7:00 pm through Monday, January 3, 2022.
According to DDS Commissioner Spencer Moore and DOR Commissioner Robyn Crittenden, “This upgrade will result in significant cost savings, while optimizing system performance and ensuring that DRIVES is always running on modern, state-of-the-art hardware.

Both agencies (DDS and DOR) and all 159 County Tax Commissioners encourage those with late December and early January renewal dates to plan ahead and renew early.
