Ga. announces new teen and parent driving guide

Georgia Department of Driver Services Commissioner Rob Mikell announced this week that an updated version of the DDS Parent Teen Driving Guide will be available online at and at licensing centers statewide beginning in January.

The award-winning publication, along with its digital version, partners with AAA the Auto Club Group as a sponsor to ensure that the publication remains a valuable and cost-free resource for parents and teens.

The public/private partnership with AAA greatly enhances efforts to keep Georgia’s roads safer by educating teen drivers and by allowing DDS to use the cost savings for other important driver services programs.

The Parent/Teen Driving Guide is powered by the Layar application technology. This free, mobile app gives additional digital content that readers can engage by using smartphones or tablets. It contains hyperlinks to expand content and further enhance the user experience.

The Guide also utilizes QR Code technology throughout the publication to provide additional resources and videos for customers. The online companion version is fully searchable, includes hyperlinks to expanded content, ability to email particular pages and one-click printing.
