ATLANTA -- The Georgia Department of Driver Services is reminding motorists to check whether their licenses will expire in 2014.

Commissioner Rob Mikell said in a statement that drivers should plan ahead and avoid waiting until the last minute if their licenses are going to expire this year.

Mikell saidplanning ahead "and having all the necessary documents ready ensures a smooth experience when you visit."

Drivers looking to renew their license are asked to bring a certified birth certificate or passport, a social security card and two documents showing a residential address.

Department officials say Georgia licenses may be renewed up to 150 days before the expiration date.
