When a Georgia police officer takes your license after arresting you for DUI, you may want to get a Georgia ID card for identification purposes. The Georgia ID card looks nearly identical to the license and can be used for the same identification purposes as any other form of Government ID.

You can get a Georgia ID card from the Department of Driver Services – and you may be able to request it online.

If you have to appear in person, keep in mind that they are not normally open on Mondays. Before heading to your local Department of Driver Services branch, you should  call ahead to make sure you have all the required documentation with you.  Expect longer delays on days immediately following a holiday.
