DUI Penalties in Georgia

In Georgia, DUI is a serious criminal offense. Those convicted of driving under the influence will face harsh penalties that can be life-altering. A DUI conviction can affect:

  • Your ability to go to school
  • Potential employment options
  • Your ability to obtain loans and financial aid

The specific consequences will depend upon two main factors: the driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level and the number of previous offenses. The higher the BAC level and the greater the number of prior offenses, the harsher the penalties will be.

Georgia’s 30-Day DUI Rule

If you have been arrested for DUI in Georgia, the Department of Driver Services can issue a 12-month suspension of your license, even before a conviction. You only have 30 days from the date of your arrest to file an appeal to prevent license suspension. In the “30-day letter” you must include specific information about yourself and the grounds for your appeal.

Upon successful filing, you will be granted an ALS hearing that will be heard by a different judge than in your criminal case. Prior to taking this step to protect your license, be sure to consult with one of our skilled DUI attorneys. We can help guide you through the process and ensure you meet all the requirements.
