DUI: Limited Driving Permit for Person’s Charged and Living in Georgia but Licensed to Drive in Another State

Categories:

Recently a client came in with an out of state license but lived in Atlanta and had not switched her license over prior to being charged with DUI in the city of Decatur Municipal Court.

It was important for this client to get her license changed over to a Georgia license at our Department of Driver’s Service prior to filing a challenge to the Adminstrative License Suspension of her license.  The simple fact is, once challenged Georgia’s Department of Driver’s Services would in effect freeze her license status.  By getting a license from the State prior to going to court she is allowed to request a affidavit of first lifetime conviction from the court and will be eligible  for a work driving permit after the her case is completed.
