Administrative license suspension

If you are stopped in Georgia by law enforcement and ultimately arrested for DUI, you may have more problems than with the court system. The state of Georgia has a right to suspend your ability to drive in Georgia if you are operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol. This proceedure is known as an administrative license suspension (ALS). After your arrest the officer may submit a petition to suspend your driver’s license. The petition is known as a 1205 form. The officer will do this if you register a .08 grams or more or if you refuse the state’s test. If this occurs you have ten days to file a request for a hearing with an administrative law judge. Your request for a hearing must be accompanied by a fee of $150.00.If this happens to you, contact an attorney as soon as possible so they may prepare your defense.Written by Richard Blevins visit me at my website. www.cobbcountylaw.com
