    Paperwork is always a time honored process. I cant understand why you can access DRIVING HISTORY by filling out a short form online. However you must download and fill out a long form for a DRIVING Record. An optimal process should be adopted to produce a document that states the same as the next document. I was shocked while attempting to change over my DL out of state. The driver service office in the state of Georgia couldn’t discern what class of DL i had. Even when the document states ” NON CDL DRIVER”. Nevertheless, it states specifically on the Georgia DSS website “Only a driving record is needed”. At this point I’m confused at what to do right now but wait for an obsolete process in these days in time of digital communication. SMH
