As Summer approaches, the Department of Driver Services (DDS) reminds students needing to test for an instructional permit or driver’s license over the long vacation to obtain a “DDS Certificate of Attendance Form” from their school administration before the end of the school year. Students planning for an on-the-road test will also need a Georgia Alcohol Drug Awareness Program (ADAP) certificate of completion.
DDS Certificate of Attendance Forms must be signed and notarized from the student’s school and presented at the time of applying for a permit or Class D driver’s license. Typically, the form is valid for one month. However, the Certificate of Attendance Forms issued in May 2009 will be accepted until September 30, 2009.
All applicants under the age of 18 not enrolled in school must provide a GED diploma, high school diploma, or an attendance form from the student’s local Board of Education if enrolled in an approved home school program.
The ADAP course is taught in both public and private schools typically with the 9th grade Health curriculum. Makeup classes are also conducted and certificates must be obtained from the student’s instructor.
