Georgia License Appeal Hearing
Failure to request a Georgia license appeal hearing before the 10-day deadline could result in an automatic suspension of your driving privileges on the 31st day after your drunk-driving arrest. Mr. Willis can prepare a license appeal letter to submit to the DDS and obtain proof that it was sent in before the deadline.
The license appeal hearing is important for several reasons besides contesting your suspension. If the officer testifies at your hearing, your defense attorney can use the transcript of his or her testimony to prepare your criminal case for trial. Should the arresting officer fail to appear for this hearing, there is a 90% chance that the prosecutor will not oppose the request to retain your driving privileges.
What is at stake if you fail to request a Georgia license appeal hearing? For a first offense, your license could be suspended for one-year. The suspension for a second offense increases to three years, while a third offense may result in a five-year suspension. A limited driving permit, which allows you to drive to work, doctor’s appointments, and other court-approved locations, may be available in some cases.
