It took more than two months, but on Thursday Dee Holden found out her Georgia drivers license had been renewed.
I was so relieved and so thankful, she said.
Holden, a Whitfield County resident, first went to the Dalton office of the Department of Driver Services in August to have her license renewed. A Georgia license holder for almost 40 years, she thought the visit would be routine.
I went Aug. 15. I called first, and the phone message gave me directions. I was sitting there and I saw something that said you have to have bills and you have to have a birth certificate. The message didnt say anything like that, she said. So I went out to the car and got some things out that had my name and address on them. I thought surely I wouldnt need my birth certificate to renew a license Ive had for more than 30 years.
Last year, the state adopted new rules to help bring it into compliance with the federal 2005 REAL ID Act, which sets requirements for drivers licenses to be used for federal ID for purposes such as boarding commercial airplanes or entering federal courthouses.
To obtain or renew a Georgia drivers license now, a person must present at least one document to prove they are a citizen, one document showing Social Security number and two documents showing the persons address. Women who have been married need their marriage license to show their name change. Women who have been divorced and change back to their maiden name will need their divorce papers.

Kool, but scarey - Upcoming Halloween and all.
Let me guess that illegals are exempt
Frankly I’m glad they tightened up the requirements to prove who the hell you are when you renew your license. Now if they would only do it for voting.
“Except to vote in demorat elections of course.”
they already made it illegal to ask for ID to vote in California.
There hasn’t been a legitimate vote count in California in over 20 years.
My wife recently received a letter from the TX DPS that requires two forms of ID along with her expiring license before they will renew her. Her’s expires in December. I just renewed mine online with no problem. I don’t understand.
We got out back in the early 90s.Thank God.
Paladin12 has to be thanked for his magnanimous support, and overwhelming input of enlightenement, without which I might still be quite bewildered, befuddled, and confused.
To borrow a line from those esteemed gentlemen, Bartle and James,
“Thank you for your support.”
My wife had to renew her expired license last month. Took a week, trips to four government offices and $$$ in fees. She was born and raised here in Mississippi.
