The Georgia Department of Driver Services has received a $299,463 grant to convert court systems that are still using paper to transmit conviction data to an electronic system.

DDS Commissioner Spencer R. Moore said the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) grant award provides for ongoing support for the Georgia Electronic Conviction Processing System (GECPS). The secure, electronic transmission of conviction data enables Georgia courts to post conviction data to individual driving records within 10 days, meeting federal requirements, Moore said.

“These funds will help augment our court outreach efforts and ultimately improve the timeliness, completeness, and accuracy of court-reported convictions that qualify for addition to a driver’s driving record,” said Moore.

GECPS requires each court to submit convictions in a standard format, and then correct and resubmit any convictions containing errors.  To date, 890 courts of 900 total courts have adopted the GECPS process.  The grant allows DDS to provide training on the GECPS and help the remaining paper citation filers convert to the electronic process.
