*** DUI violations in the State of Georgia may have a 1205 form which is the State’s attempt to civilly terminate driving privileges prior to a disposition of the DUI citation (See O.C.G.A. § 40-5- 67.1 for the Administrative License Suspension process). This form should always be assumed to be pending, because if you do not submit a request for a hearing on your driving privileges within thirty calendar days from the date of the arrest, your privileges to drive in the State of Georgia could be suspended after forty-five days. While the hearing requests do require a filing fee of $150.00 to be properly requested, we encourage everyone to request the hearing within that thirty day period if there is any doubt. Failure to timely request the hearing waives your right to have a hearing on your driving privileges. Consequently, your license could be lost until there is resolution of the underlying criminal charge. Confused and/or Concerned? Come in and talk to us within the thirty days.
