DDS Medical Advisory Board Opportunity

The Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) is in the process of appointing new members to its Medical Advisory Board.  MAG has historically provided DDS recommendations from our membership base.

DDS is in need of the following to serve on our Medical Advisory Board, (total of 4), effective July 1, 2022 for a 4 year term:

  • Neurologist
  • Doctor of Psychiatry
  • Endocrinologist
  • Ophthalmologist

The DDS Medical Review Unit investigates all cases submitted for review and issues the appropriate determination concerning the driver’s ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.

The DDS Drivers License Advisory Board (DLAB) counsels DDS on medical issues relating to driver’s licenses and helps the Medical Review Unit in complex cases by rendering a medical opinion. DDS sends out approximately 2-3 DLAB requests each month. These are sent via email, mail or whatever method the physician prefers.

GA DDS would need to obtain a CV Resume from interested physicians who must be board certified.
