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 2011 will be accepted until September 30, 2011.
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.
In addition to the Certificate of Attendance, successful completion of the Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program (ADAP) is required to obtain a permit. ADAP is typically taught in both public and private schools as part of the 9th grade Health curriculum. Now eligible students have an additional avenue for obtaining the required course, eADAP. This new internet option is available to students who are home-schooled, have moved to Georgia from another state, were absent from school when the ADAP courses was taught, or who need the course during the summer months.
