New Driver's License Center opens in Albany

January 8, 2004

Albany -- There's a new office in Albany where you'll go to get your driver's license.

The new state Driver's License Services office opened in the 2000 block of Newton Road Thursday. It's near Albany Tech and the Dougherty County Police Headquarters.

The new office is much bigger than the old D.M.V.S. headquarters. D.M.V.S. Supervisor Harriett Taylor said "You can see the office is much bigger. Our customer's had to stand outside at the old office, but now they can come inside out of the cold or heat."

New features include a welcome station where clerks make sure you have all the documents and information you need before standing in line. There are 7 stations to wait on customers and two photography and finger printing stations.

Outside driver skills tests for cars and motorcycles are given everyday. Dougherty County paid a half million dollars for the building which was built with inmate labor.
