A. If the dependent's name appears on the registration or the dependent has a notarized
letter giving them permission to register the vehicle, or power of attorney over the property.

Fort Stewart or Hunter Army Airfield?
A: Yes. You (and all occupants 16 years of age and older) must present a valid matching form of
photo identification (driver‘s license, State ID card, etc.) and you will be eligible for access at all
gates except Rio Gate at Hunter Army Airfield (decaled vehicles only authorized access at Rio Gate).
Q. I am a contractor but I do not have a contractor's I.D., can I get a sticker?
A. No, but you can get with your company liaison in order to go to the CPO office and get the

A. You must remove your stickers and turn them in at the vehicle registration on your post. You

Applying for a Georgia driver‘s license or identification card can be quick and easy if you are
prepared before visiting a customer service center. Please be sure to bring all of the documents
and information that DDS needs to process your application.
 First, you need proof of your identity. The DDS accepts any of the following documents as
proof of identity:
               a.   Original birth certificate;
               b.   Certificate or birth registration;
               c.   Certified copy of birth certificate;
               d.   Certified copy of court records (adoption, name, or sex change);
               e.   Certified naturalization documentation;
               f.   Immigration ID Card;
               g.   Valid passport;
               h.   Military identification card issued by the United States armed forces.



                                                 7
Next, you need proof that you are a United States citizen, or if you are not a citizen, you must be
lawfully present in the United States.
Documents that are accepted as proof of United States citizenship:
   a.   Original birth certificate issued by a United States jurisdiction;
   b.   Certified copy of birth certificate issued by a United States jurisdiction;
   c.   Valid United States passport;
   d.   Original certificate of citizenship (Form N560)
   e.   Certified copy of certificate of citizenship (Form N560)
   f.   Original certificate of naturalization (Form N550)
   g.   Certified copy of certificate of naturalization (Form N550)

Documents that are accepted from non-citizens as proof of lawful presence in the
United States:
   a.   Foreign passport with appropriate immigration documents;
   b.   Resident Alien Card (Form I-551);
   c.   Temporary Resident Alien Card (Form I-668);
   d.   United States Department of Receptions and Placement Program Assurance Form (for
        refugees).

*Military identification cards are not accepted as proof of citizenship or lawful presence in the
United States as the armed forces will accept applicants who are not citizens and non-citizen
applicants need not be lawfully present in the United States.
Third, DDS needs verification that you are now a Georgia resident. Documents that are accepted
as proof of Georgia residency:
   a. Utility bill issued within the last sixty (60) days with valid Georgia residence address;
   b. Bank statement issued within the last sixty (60) days with valid Georgia residence
      address;
   c. Currently valid rental contracts and/or receipts for payments made within the last sixty
      (60) days for rent payments with valid Georgia residence address;
   d. Employer verification;
   e. Non-expired Georgia driver‘s license, permit or identification card issued to parent,
      guardian, or spouse.

 Other things to know:
 All documents presented must be the originals issued by governmental entities or certified
copies.
DDS typically uses the name reflected on each customer‘s birth certificate as the name that will
be used on the driver‘s license or identification card. If your name has changed from that
reflected on your birth certificate due to marriage, divorce, adoption, or court-ordered name
change, please be sure to bring a certified copy of the document(s) reflecting this as well.

                                                  8
DDS will also need to verify your social security number, so be sure to have it or documentation
from the Social Security Administration verifying that you are not eligible for a social security
number.

 Most customers are required to surrender any driver‘s license or identification card previously
issued by another jurisdiction. If you have lost the driver‘s license or identification card
previously issued to you by another jurisdiction, please bring a certified copy of your driving
record from that state issued within the past thirty (30) days.
Customers who surrender a valid driver‘s license issued by another state or the District of
Columbia are not required to take a written test or road test to be issued a Georgia driver‘s
license. Customers surrendering licenses issued from other countries and the United States
territories, including Guam, are required to take both the written and road tests.
 If you need to replace a Georgia driver‘s license that has been expired for more than two (2)
years, you will also be required to complete the written test or road test.
Need More Information?
 If you have any questions relating to driver‘s licenses, identification cards, driver education or
other topics within the jurisdiction of the DDS, please visit the website, www.dds.ga.gov, or call
the customer contact center at ( 678) 413-8400.

HOMESCHOOLING
Whether you are new to homeschooling or a veteran, it is good to become educated on the laws
and regulations of your state. Home school laws and regulations vary from state to state.

GEORGIA REQUIREMENTS:
Compulsory Attendance Ages: "between 6th and 16th birthdays." However, if a child is under 6
and has attended more than 20 days in a public school, he is then subject to the compulsory
attendance laws. The required days of instruction are 180 days, 4.5 hours per day. Parents are
required to teach a basic academic educational program that includes, but is not limited to,
reading, language arts, math, social studies, and science. Parents must submit a declaration of
intent to home study to the local superintendent thirty days after the establishment of the home
study program and by Sept. 1 every year thereafter. This declaration must include the names and
ages of students, the location of the home school, and the time the parents designate as their
school year. Attendance records must be kept and submitted to the superintendent each month.
Note: An exception to the rule pertains to military students residing on post where DoDEA
schools are present. Military children who live in the area designated to attend a DoDEA school,
must submit their intent and attendance to the local DoDEA School. For a more comprehensive
description of Georgia home school laws see http://www.ghea.org/pages/resources/stateLaw.php


                                               25
SUPPORT:
