    i recently renewed my licence on line and recieved a piece of paper back---i heard where some people got a laminated licence back- because of my age i had to get my eyes checked by a licenced eye doctor--do i send the receipt back to the dds and the price of the licence plus the eye exam papers?

    What state are you in, Betty? In Texas, you get a paper receipt from the DPS, then in a few weeks the laminated license shows up in the mail. (I have never renewed online, though.) I'd suggest calling your local DPS office and ask how to proceed.

    I'm not sure about how Georgia does it, Betty. Your best answer would be to call the DMV office and ask what they need. It may be that they don't issue the laminated license until they have your eye exam results, but I don't know.

    What part of GA are you in? I'm originally from south GA, around Valdosta. My family is scattered from Bainbridge to Douglasville. :D

    What a small world. My sister and BIL live on a farm between Douglas and Nashville. I have a bunch of nieces and nephews in that area, too. (Mostly Berrien County)

    Betty...you didn't state what type of license you're referring to:

    Driver Operator License?
    Liquor License?
    Street Vendor License?
    Gambling Dealer License?
    Marriage License?
    Vehicle Repair License?
    Canine Breeders License?
    Private Pilots License?
    Licensed Fireworks Technician?
    Licensed Eye Doctor?

    If you'd read the thread instead of trying to correct people, you'd see that Betty has referenced the DMV. Can you figure out what kind of license she's asking about, Hal?
