Kemp: Order suspending on-the-road tests was temporary, drivers must still take test

ATLANTA (41NBC/WMGT) – Georgia Governor Brian Kemp issued an executive order Tuesday afternoon that said all drivers who received their licenses while on-the-road tests were suspended must take an on-the-road test after all.

Executive Order said Section IX of Executive Order titled “Drivers Services,” which included the suspension of on-the-road tests, “shall terminate at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 11, 2020.”

Tuesday’s order said the Department of Drivers’ Services should correct public guidance documents to reflect that “the on-the-road test was only temporarily suspended by Executive Order”

“All drivers who received licenses pursuant to that Order are still required to and shall complete an on-the-road test to maintain their driver’s license,” Tuesday’s order said.

Kemp directed the DDS to provide a process for drivers who have been awarded a driver’s license without completing an on-the-road test to complete an on-the-road test “no later than September 30, 2020.”

Driving tests may be administered by DDS examiners riding in the vehicle or by remote means, the order said.
