On August 7, 2015 state and county leaders officially opened a brand new state-of-the-art driver services center in Cobb County at 3690 Old 41 Highway NW, Kennesaw, 30144. The new Department of Driver Services (DDS) center is approximately one half mile north of North Cobb High School.

A partnership between the State of Georgia and Cobb County enabled the 10,000 square foot facility to replace the previous DDS location at 2800 Canton Road in Marietta. The Canton Road center was too small for the areas growing population.

The new center opened the doors for customers on June 16 and for the first few weeks served 9,214 customers with an average wait time of 13.07 (thirteen minutes and seven seconds).  “After the initial learning curve for customers that are accustomed to visiting the old location, I am sure that the customers are going to be very proud to have this new center in Kennesaw,” said DDS Commissioner Rob Mikell.
