Georgia Knowledge Test
Who Must Take the Test?
All persons applying for an original Georgia license are required to pass a knowledge exam consisting of a road signs test and a road rules test.
To renew a driver’s license that has been expired more than two years, you must also pass the knowledge test.
A knowledge test is also required when transferring a license from another country. Citizens of some foreign countries may be exempt from knowledge and skills testing. For a list, visit www.dds.ga.gov.
If you hold a valid driver’s license or instructional permit issued by any other state of the United States or by the District of Columbia, you will normally be eligible to obtain a comparable license or permit issued by Georgia without taking the exam.
Knowledge exams are given on a walk-in basis at every Customer Service Center. You must begin taking the written test at least 30 minutes prior to closing.
The road rules tests are available in some non-English languages, but the road signs test are conducted in English only. You must be able to read and understand simple English such as is used in highway signs.
Special assistance for customers with reading disabilities and hearing impairment is available.
You may not bring pens, pencils, paper, books, or any other items into the testing area. Cell phones, text messaging devices, and other types of wireless devices are prohibited. You may not speak to anyone during the test.
