Georgia DUI 10-Day Rule

In Georgia, if you either refused to submit to the official state test, or if you submitted and have a breath test of 0.08 or higher and are over the age of 21, the state will attempt to suspend your license or privilege to drive.  In almost every case, this attempt happens BEFORE your trial.

This happens AUTOMATICALLY unless you file an appeal within 10 days of your arrest.  Filing an “appeal” allows for a postponement and may stop a potential suspension.
