    As some of you saw in my other posts i was a victim of a armed robbery 3 weeks ago. My license was one of the things they got. I went to the probate court in fulton county (downtown) and I got another in 1 Hr! I paid 5 dollars and showed my drivers license and that was it. The judge signed it right in front of me. Wow was i surprised. I wasnt even thinking i was going to get it today. Lucky me.

    Wow, that's awesome. Does anyone know how replacements work? Is there a probate record of your license that they can look at to see that you were previously issued a license?

    Mike,

    There is a LOT of history behind why things are that way in Fulton. It did not used to be that way.

    They can look in the DB and find you, but make sure u have a valid id before u try anything. But There is no DB the police can look into.

    the court must keep your app on file for something like 9 years.

    Does that 9 years reset when you renew?

    Wow, took longer than I thought to find it. Mainly because I thought it was in the law when it is really a thing the probate courts as a collective (Council of Probate court Judges) have to do.

    Shoot, a year ago in Fulton you would still be waiting for your original GFL from two years ago.

    Congrats on your re-issuance. Even though following the law is no reason for praise :lol:

    Did you tell them HOW you lost your previous license?

    Yes

    I told them it was stolen and I did have to fill out a affidavit. I had to do a quick background check at the police office (no charge) and I was done. I choose to wait because the clerk said i might get it back today. In about 15 mins. there it was. The only difference is they have a reissue date on the card in the fingerprint box. They did give me a new license #. Iv had nothing but good experences from the courthouse downtown. Got my original in about 45 days.

    Re: Yes

    What would be the difference between the background check they did for your replacement and the original? If they're the same one, I don't see why it would take more than a week for new licensees.
