If you refuse to submit to a chemical test in the state of Georgia your GA driver's license will be suspended for a period of 12 months pursuant to Georgia Administrative License Suspension vehicle code 40-5-67.1 G for a 1st offense.
In either instance, whether you are found to have an unlawful blood alcohol concentration (BAC) or you refuse to submit to a chemical test your GA drivers license will be suspended as indicated above. In this instance you only have 10 business days from the day of the arrest to request a hearing to prevent the administrative license suspension ( ALS) from occurring.
The 10 day deadline is critical, so you must schedule the hearing before this deadline to save your driving privileges. Normally, you can call the telephone number indicated on the temporary paper license and schedule the hearing. Don't wait, do it right away.
No matter if you are a first time offender or a repeat offender, your Georgia DUI could carry serious consequences for your insurance premiums. You will either find that you are dropped by your insurance provider, or you will find your premium cost has skyrocketed. This can even affect your family members that are on your insurance policy.
