Until 2013, a driver with multiple DUI convictions within a 5 year period was forced to undergo a mandatory 18 month hard suspension. A hard suspension is one that cannot be reduced regardless of the situation. However, now a driver that finds themselves in this circumstance is able to seek a limited driving permit after a hard suspension of only 120 days. This new law does not mean that you are automatically given a limited permit after the hard suspension period is over.

In order to receive a limited driving permit, certain qualifications must be met. First, there must be a hardship caused by a person’s failure to drive that a limited driving permit could remedy. These hardships include but are not limited to activities such as: driving to work/work related functions, driving to doctors’ appointments, attending court, attending school and transporting non-licensed immediate family members to those destinations as well. Second, you must be enrolled in clinical treatment or DUI court. Finally, you must have permission from the court before you can apply for a limited driving permit.

The requirements to receive a limited driving permit can be difficult to show on ones own. If you have received a DUI in North Georgia or Hall County it’s important to consider a well-trained DUI lawyer to assist you in your defense and in regaining your license as soon as possible.
