National Others Driver


You do not need to apply for a Georgia license unless you become a resident of Georgia.

A super driver's license would have the same effect on a massive scale, as Latinos, Asians, Muslims, and persons of Middle Eastern descent become subject to ceaseless status and identity checks from police, banks, merchants and others. Failure to carry a national ID card would likely come to be viewed as a reason for search, detention or arrest. Clearing Stops on the National Driver Registry If you have “stops” on your driver license that prevent you from renewing or reinstating it, you must clear them with whatever state entered them into your driver record in the National Driver Registry (NDR). You can then call DVLA to check the driver’s details after they’ve given their permission. DVLA - for the person doing the check Telephone: 0906 139 3837 (calls cost 51p per minute). As a rideshare, taxi, limo, or other driver-for-hire, how can I protect myself and others? As a driver-for-hire, potential sources of exposure include having close contact with passengers with COVID-19, or touching surfaces touched or handled by a person with COVID-19.

If you become a resident, you must meet the requirements for Identity, Citizenship, and Residency. If you are driving in Georgia with a license issued by a driver's licensing authority of a foreign country, a law enforcement officer may ask for your passport or visa to verify the validity of your driver's license. See Georgia Rule O.C.G.A. § 40-5-21 for information.

All documents must be in English.

What are the National Driver Register (NDR) and Problem Driver Pointer System (PDPS)?

The National Driver Register (NDR) is a division in the National Center for Statistics and Analysis under the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The NDR maintains the computerized database known as the Problem Driver Pointer System (PDPS) which contains information on individuals whose privilege to operate a motor vehicle has been revoked, suspended, canceled or denied or who have been convicted of serious traffic-related offenses. The records maintained at the NDR consist of identification information including name, date of birth, gender, driver license number, and reporting State. Based on information received as a result of an NDR search, PDPS will 'point' the State of Inquiry (SOI) to the State of Record (SOR), where an individual's driver status and history information is maintained.

Possible NDR status outputs from system:

  • No Match: The individual does not have record on the PDPS
  • Match: The individual does have a record on the PDPS
  • Licensed (LIC): Licensed means the individual holds a license in that State and the privilege to drive is valid. (Only drivers who previously had a suspension/revocation and have cleared their history are included here.)
  • Eligible (ELG): The individual’s privilege to drive or apply for a license in a State(s) is valid
  • Not Eligible (NELG): The individual’s privilege to drive in a State(s) is invalid
