A DUI suspension can follow you for years. It highly recommended to have an experienced attorney on your side. At Blevins & Hong, we have assisted many clients facing DUI charges. Many of those cases led to charges being dropped. Georgia has recently created a new law regarding DUI.
Effective January 1st, 2013, in Georgia if you get convicted or pled guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol for the second time in a five year period as measured from dates of arrest, you can get a limited driving permit.
Berfore 2013, on a second conviction in five years, you would suffer a DUI suspension of three years. You could get a limited permit to driver after a year. Then you must also install an ignition interlock device in your car.
Now, if you are enrolled in a DUI Court program or an approved treatment program, you can petition the trial judge who sentenced you to allow you to get a limited driving permit after four months. You will be required to get an ignition interlock for eight months. After the eight months, you can get a limited permit for six months. After that six months you can apply for full reinstatement of your driver’s license.
