The Georgia Department of Driver Services is warning the public of a phone scam that asks drivers to provide their driving license details and pay a fee to reinstate their license.

The caller claims to be from the Department of Driver Services but in reality is a common voice phishing scam designed to steal personal information and money from recipients.

Customers can quickly verify the status of their license on the DDS website at this secure link https://dds.drives.ga.gov/_/by.

Voice and computer phishing scammers use many and varied tactics to trick victims into handing over their personal or financial information. Georgians should be very cautious of any unsolicited telephone calls, texts or emails that claim to be government departments, banks or companies that instruct them to follow a link or open an attachment to update or verify personal information.
