Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

October 12, 2017 - Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) Commissioner Spencer R. Moore encourages parents and their teens to work together to develop safe driving skills not only during National Teen Driver Safety Week from October 15-21 but every day. This year’s campaign is dedicated to bringing teens and their parents together to develop and practice safe driving skills.

“I encourage each parent or guardian to take an active role in educating their teen driver and their peers with safe driving habits.,” said Commissioner Moore.  “Please be familiar with and enforce the teen driving rules, and always be a good example,” he added.

DDS has several valuable tools online at available for parents and teens to make this a more enjoyable and productive process including:

  • Complete education, testing and licensing information tailored to the teen driver and their parents.
  • The newly revised Georgia Drivers Manual which incorporates Layar application technology may be accessed at  A free, mobile app gives additional digital content that readers can engage by using smartphones or tablets.  It contains live hyperlinks to expand content and further enhance the user experience. The manual also utilizes QR Code technology throughout the publication to provide links to additional information for the student.
  • An online Driver’s License Practice Test will give teens an idea what to expect as they study for the Knowledge and Sign Test required for issuance of a Class CP learner’s permit.  It may be accessed at this link:
  • What’s Your Driving IQ? is a handy checklist for evaluating and initiating conversations about a driver’s skill level.
  • The Parent Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program complements the student’s program designed to raise awareness among teens of the adverse effects of drugs and alcohol and to educate teens on the consequences of operating a motor vehicle while impaired.  It is completely voluntary and may be accessed online at no charge.
  • Ask Teen Driver enables teens and parents to submit their questions online to DDS.
