      30-Day License Suspension Rule in Georgia

      Arrested for DUI? You Only Have 30 Calendar Days to Save Your License!

      If you have been arrested on suspicion of DUI, need to be fully aware of what the 30-day rule could hold for you. Under this law, you could lose your driver’s license for one full year unless you request an administrative license suspension (ALS) hearing within 30 calendar days. How can you know if you need to request this hearing with the Department of Driver Services? At the time of your drunk driving arrest, you would have handed your license over to the officer and been given Form 1205, a yellow piece of paper that reads “Georgia Department of Driver Services” at the top.


      This form serves as your temporary license, and you will only have 30 calendar​ days to save your confiscated license.


      If you refused a blood, breath, or urine test, you will have been given this temporary license. The same is true if you attempted these DUI tests, but were mistakenly reported as refusing these tests. You have 30 calendar days from the arrest to request a hearing at the Department of Driver Services (DDS). If you fail do to so, you will automatically lose your license, even before you present your defense in court, and even if you are acquitted of your charges in the end. If you take advantage of your right to request a DDS hearing, however, you may be able to defend your driving privileges.

      After a DUI arrest in Georgia, you could lose your license for:

      • One year for the first license suspension
      • Three years for the second DUI arrest
      • Five years for a third accusation
