Take your Georgia Road Test at Barber’s Driving School
Barber’s Driving School, Inc., is licensed by the Georgia Department of Driver Services to administer the Georgia Road Test. If you are under 18, you must have completed one of our Driver Education Courses to include 30 hours of classroom and a minimum of 6 hours of driving. If you are over 18, there are no class or driving requirements. This is new and came into effect on July 1, 2021. In 2020, Barber’s Driving School administered approximately 1,200 Georgia Road Tests to its student graduates.
The Georgia Road Test will be conducted in our vehicle, with our insurance and fuel. We have many examiners who are licensed by the Georgia DDS to administer the test on our course. Many times, your driving instructor will be your examiner; however, it will depend on the time requested for the test and availability of the examiner.
If you fail, don’t worry; the Georgia Department of Driver Services allows one more try with us, and we do not charge for the second test.

On test day, you must provide your own transportation to and from the school. You only need to bring your Learner’s Permit to take the test. If you have lost your permit and have a replacement Learner’s Permit that has an issue date that states you have had the permit less than one year and one day, you will need to bring a copy of your MVR showing the original issue date to the test. If you are under 18, a parent or legal guardian must sign giving us permission to test you. Click below to create an account on the Georgia DDS website and purchase your MVR. Print out the MVR and bring it with you on test day.
The test generally takes 20 minutes or less, and, when you complete and pass, your examiner will issue you a Certificate of Passing and you take this Certificate along with the other documents listed below to any Georgia DDS Service Centers to actually pick up your Driver’s License. You should schedule an appointment for License/ID Counter Services at www.dds.ga.gov to obtain the physical license. DDS current hours of operation are 8am-6pm M-F and 8am-12noon on Sat., DDS is CLOSED on Sundays and Mondays.
