Free Union City DUI License Suspension Appeal Letter
Attention Union City drivers: Following a Georgia driving under the influence (DUI) arrest, you have a limited period of time in which you can fight your immediate license suspension. Failure to submit your hearing request before this deadline will result in an automatic suspension of your driving privileges, imposed by the Department of Driver Services (DDS).
After being arrested for DUI, the officer will provide you with a yellow form known as the DS-1205 form. Drivers who test over the legal limit or who refuse to submit to a breathalyzer test are automatically given a copy of this form, while the other copy goes to the DDS. The DS-1205 explains that you have only 10 business days from the date of your DUI arrest to submit a driver’s license appeal letter to the DDS and serves as your temporary driving permit for 30 days after your arrest.
Requesting a hearing with the DDS can be difficult, as all of the paperwork must be properly completed. At Head, Thomas, Webb and Willis, we provide each client with a FREE Union City DUI license suspension appeal letter. For your protection, we send these letters via certified mail and fax to get proof that your appeal was submitted to the DDS before the 10-day deadline.
If you do not submit an appeal letter, the DDS will automatically suspend your license. The suspension period for a first offense is 12 months; however, it is increased for each additional offense. A second offense carries a three-year suspension and a third offense carries a five-year suspension. Commercial vehicle operators may lose their CDL, which could result in the loss of employment.
