The Limited Driving Permit (LDP) allows you to drive to:

- School; and,
- Drug or alcohol support groups; and,
- Driver's education
- Court, probation, or community service; and,
- Unlicensed family members doctor’s appointments; and,

The LDP is not available to drive a commercial vehicles. If Georgia DDS deems necessary, it may specify the places you can travel, the vehicle you use, and the route you may take. DDS will revoke a LDP if the driver is convicted of violating any law related to vehicles, or if an additional suspension imposed.
