Administrative License Suspension

Cobb County DUI Defense Lawyer

After being arrested for a DUI in Georgia, if you don't want to lose your driving privileges, you must appeal the administrative license suspension which automatically suspends your driving privileges. This is done by sending a written request asking for a hearing concerning your license suspension. This request must be received by the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) within 10 days after your arrest.

If you need legal assistance with handling this matter, please contact The Glasgow Law Firm. A Marietta DUI attorney who will ensure that your request is written to the DDS in a timely manner. Attorney Glasgow can also accompany you to the administrative license suspension hearing as well as provide competent defense for any DUI charge.

Administrative License Suspension Hearings

After the DDS receives your written request, you will be informed as to the date of the hearing concerning your license suspension. You will also receive a letter prolonging your driving privileges until the date of the hearing. If you are successful at the hearing, the automatic license suspension will be lifted allowing you to continue driving. You may or may not be required to appear at the hearing, depending on the circumstances and if you have engaged the services of an attorney.

Any driver who refuses to take a chemical test when asked to do so by a law enforcement officer may lose their right to drive for up to one year.
