Penalties for Third DUI in Georgia
Representation from a Dedicated Atlanta DUI Defense Attorney
Most DUI convictions, whether they be a first or second offense, are charged as misdemeanors and can usually be resolved with temporarily limiting driving privileges, a fine, and a brief probationary period. However, a conviction of a third DUI offense is considered much more serious and becomes a felony charge. Like most felony charges, a third DUI conviction can come with life-altering consequences.
It is, however, possible to fight these charges, illuminate the court to your circumstances, and avoid maximum penalties. At Willis Law Firm, our driven Atlanta DUI defense lawyer has been securing reductions and dismissals for our DUI clients over the course of more than 20 years of legal experience—including for repeat DUI offenses. We know what it takes to fight these charges in court and are ready to bring our unparalleled knowledge and insight to your corner today.

Maximum Third DUI Offense Penalties
If you are charged with a third DUI, you do not have the opportunity to call for an ALS hearing. Instead, your license is revoked for five years and you must surrender your license plate. If you meet certain requirements, after two years of this revocation, you may be able to obtain a probationary license that will allow you limited driving privileges.
The penalties resulting from your criminal charge can include:
- Up to one year in jail (15 days mandatory)
- Up to $5000 in fines
- Up to one year of probation (minus any time served)
- 30 days of community service
- Installation of an IID device (following license revocation)
- Completion of a substance abuse Risk Reduction Program
- Clinical evaluation
Other penalties may also apply. If you have any questions about what specific penalties you could be facing for your third DUI offense, then it is time to contact proven and reliable representation to help you take the next steps in evaluating your charge.
