The Georgia Department of Driver Services maintains your driving record in the State of Georgia. This record is separate from your GCIC criminal record and contains only driving offenses and license suspension information. Unlike your criminal record where the information is transmitted as soon as you are arrested, your driving record is not impacted until your traffic case is closed in court. Once you have been issued a citation or ticket, you must appear in court on the date listed and your attorney will negotiate your case with the prosecutor. Depending on the outcome of your traffic ticket, your driving record maybe notified of the result. Sometimes, through negotiations, your attorney can keep your ticket from being reported back to driver services, which is very beneficial to you and your insurance rates since insurance companies pull their information from your Georgia driving record when determining your rates and insurability. To obtain a copy of your 3 or 7 year driving record from DDS, visit their website or drop into a local DDS location.
