Reinstatement Fees and Payment Options

Reinstatement Fees

Important Message: The reinstatement fees, listed below, are current mandated fees for several drivers' license suspension types that DDS receives questions about as set forth by the Georgia General Assembly.

The effective conviction date, possibility of multiple convictions and/or suspensions and other factors in your specific case, can contribute to a different fee.
