Driving with Suspended License
In Georgia, O.C.G.A. 40-5-121 lays out the offense and penalties regarding suspended licenses. Suspended license is a VERY SERIOUS offense.
If you are convicted of driving on a suspended license, the MANDATORY MINIMUM penalties on a first offense are:
Imprisonment not less than two (2) days nor more than twelve (12) months;
Fine no less than $500.00 nor more than $1,000.00;
Mandatory fingerprinting is forwarded to Ga. Crime Information Center;
Extension of License Suspension for additional six (6) months;
$210.00 reinstatement fee at end of additional six (6) suspension period;
Court confiscation of drivers license when convicted;
2nd and 3rd offense penalties: HIGH AND AGRAVATED MISDEMEANOR, ten (10) days Jail, $1,000.00 to $2,500.00 fine, six (6) month suspension, $310.00-$410.00 reinstatement fee;
4th and subsequent offense penalties: FELONY-Imprisonment for not less than one (1) year nor more than five (5) years and a $2,500.00 to $5,000.00 fine.
Driving privileges can be suspended for many different reasons. For example if you are convicted of a DUI or drug offense, your license or privilege to drive in the State of Georgia will be suspended. If you fail to appear for court or you drive without valid driving privileges you may also face suspended license penalties.
