Asked over 3 years ago - Atlanta, GAFlag
I sometimes drive without a driver license because of forgetting my wallet. So I intend to make a copy of my driver license and place it in my car. Is it ok if I have a copy of my driver license or I must have a real driver license while operating a vehicle in Georgia?

GA law requires you to have your license on your person when you drive. It carries a fine of $20 or so. The only concern I would have with you keeping a copy of it in your car for those times when you forget your wallet is identity theft. Don't make a copy of it; better to remember NOT to leave your wallet at home. As long as you remember your DOB and name, an officer can look it up.
