Underage DUI in Georgia and Your License
What Happens to Your GA Driver’s License if You are Convicted of DUI Underage?
In Georgia, if you are convicted of a DUI and you are under 21 years of age, your license will be automatically suspended for a period of six months. During those six months, you are ineligible for a limited permit. This is known as a hard suspension.
Unlike other license suspensions, you cannot get a permit to drive to and from work, school, or other necessary places. You will lose your driving privileges completely for the entire six months.
Save Your License
The best way to keep your driving privileges if you are underage and charged with a DUI is to beat the DUI case. Judges and juries often take underage DUIs more seriously than a regular DUI charge. For example, many potential jurors will likely feel that if you are underage, you should not have a drink and drive period. That’s not the law (.02 or less), but personal feelings can definitely influence a juror’s judgment.
