License Consequence Of Driving Under The Influence

If you have been charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI), it is critical that you hire a qualified and knowledgeable attorney immediately.

Administrative Suspension

One of the immediate consequences of being charged with DUI is an administrative license suspension by the Department of Driver Services (DDS). If you have been arrested for DUI and you REFUSED to take the state administered chemical test OR you took the state administered chemical test and you tested over the legal limit, your privilege to drive on the roads and highways of Georgia is in jeopardy.

You have ten (10) business days after the date of arrest to submit a request an administrative hearing or risk facing up to a ONE YEAR license suspension without the possibility of a limited permit. At Farnsworth & Murphy LLC, we will request the administrative hearing and represent you at that hearing.

Criminal Suspension

If you are convicted of DUI there can be additional license suspension consequences.
