May I drive while my DUI case is pending?
Yes. As long as you possess a valid driver’s license, you may drive in Georgia while your DUI case is pending. Your privilege to drive is suspended only after a DUI conviction, but can be suspended administratively before court for a refusal of a test, or an alcohol content test result above the legal limit. Your license is affected only after a court holds that you have violated the Implied Consent Law or have been convicted of DUI.
If you have specific questions about your driver’s license and/or rights following a DUI arrest in Lawrenceville, for example, speak to an experienced Lawrenceville DUI lawyer at Hawkins Spizman Kilgo who can answer your questions.
