Traffic school designed with you in mind

When teens are first learning to drive, they are highly receptive to important messages about the dangers of unsafe driving and driving while intoxicated. That is why it is so important for parents to get involved at this initial stage to ensure proper and thorough education to help set ground rules and instill good driving habits, as their teen takes on the responsibility of operating a motor vehicle.

Our course makes getting your permit or first time license easy. The GA drivers ed course is 100% online so you control the pace and log in and out whenever you want to complete the program on your own time. What are you waiting for? The road is ready for you.

What Do You Need to Get a Georgia Learner’s Permit?

At age 15, you’re finally eligible to apply for a Georgia learner’s permit. You’ll want to make an appointment at a nearby DMV to apply for your permit, and there are several things that you’ll want to bring with you.

After presenting these materials, you’ll be ready to move on to a few important tests.

  • Road Rule & Road Signs Exam
  • Vision Exam

If you made it past both those test, then you’ll receive your Georgia learner’s permit. The permit is valid for 2 years, but you can still only drive with someone who is over 21, licensed, and in your passenger seat. You can apply for your intermediate license, after holding your learner’s for one year.

What Do You Need to Get a Georgia Driver’s License?
You have to be 16 to be able to apply for your Class D Georgia license, and there are a few other requirements as well.

  • You must surrender your learner’s permit after holding it for 1 year and 1 day.
  • You must provide proof that you completed Georgia drivers ed.
  • Bring a copy of your Certificate of Completion.
  • Bring your social security card.
  • Bring proof of 40 hours of supervised driving experience with 6 hours at night.
  • Your parent or guardian should complete the Parent Teen Driving Guide.
  • Remember your Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program card.
  • Pay a $10 license fee.
  • Have your school notarize a Georgia DDS Certificate of Attendance.

Bring your parent/guardian, along with your learner’s permit and required materials to a Georgia DMV office. Now it’s time for a few more tests.

  • Vision Exam
  • The Official DDS Road Test

Make sure that the vehicle used in your road test is insured and registered. Pass those two test and you’ve finally received your first driver’s license in Georgia!

Georgia Intermediate License Restrictions

You may have your intermediate license, but there are still some restrictions that you need to remember.

  • With your learner’s permit, a licensed driver who is over the age of 21 must ride in the passenger seat at all times.
  • With your intermediate license, you can’t drive between Midnight and 6am unless there is a licensed driver in your passenger seat who is at least 21 years or older.
  • With your intermediate license, you can’t carry passengers that aren’t family for the first six months.
  • After six months with your intermediate license, you can drive one person who isn’t family and under the age of 21.
  • Once you’ve driven with your intermediate license for a year, you can carry 3 non-family members under 21.

All of these restrictions go away once you turn 18 and receive your Class C driver’s license as long as you haven’t had any serious traffic violations within the last year.
Minimum Georgia Auto Insurance Coverage & Penalties

Hopefully, you know that liability insurance coverage is required for any vehicle you drive. If you don’t have any insurance and you’re pulled over, you can be fined. If you’re involved in a wreck without insurance, you could have your Georgia learner’s permit or provisional license suspended.

Drunk Driving, Cell Phone, & Text Messaging, Laws in Georgia

New drivers in Georgia should be aware of the traffic laws that affect them most.
One of the most serious violations is a Georgia Dui (.08) conviction and these are the penalties:

  • Ten Days to One Year in Jail
  • Fines Between $500 – $1000
  • 1 Year Suspension of Your License
  • One Hundred Hours of Community Service

Any more DUI convictions will mean that you can get additional community service, fines, or jail time. You could even get your Georgia license revoked.
Currently there aren’t laws banning cellphone use in Georgia, but it is still dangerous.
