Being arrested for driving under the influence is a terrible event that will have a lot of consequences on your life.

Driver's License Suspension in Savannah
Having your license suspended is a critical impairment to your entire life, not a mere inconvenience. In the state of Georgia, these suspensions can occur for a varied assembly or reasons, but one of the common causes has to do with something called an “administrative license suspension,” which usually is a consequence for being charged for driving under the influence. Thankfully, there is an opportunity to appeal, so that you do not have to depend on unreliable public transit, expensive taxis, or busy friends just to get to the places you need for the necessities of life.
ALS Hearings in Savannah
When you are at an administrative license hearing, there are certain factors which will contribute to how long your suspension will last. The hearing officer will carefully weigh-in these aspects when deciding.
Some of these considerations include:
- If an actual accident occurred, especially one that involved a terrible injury or even a fatality, based on your behavior or mental and physical capacity at the time
- If the officer who had arrested you really had logical grounds to pull you over, based on true signs you were under the influence
- If you were ever completely or appropriately informed about your rights to consent
- If you were ever told what the consequences were for not consenting to testing, including the BAC (breath test)
- If your BAC test came back at the level being above of .08% (if you are an adult), or if the level was above .02% (if you are younger than 21)
- Whether you refused the state administrated test
Do Not Delay
It is important to remember that you have a limited time to appeal. It used to be that you only had ten days to appeal, but since July 1, 2017, the rule has been extended so you now have 30 days. This time period passes rapidly, however, so you need to get started challenging the penalty with the appropriate letter and fees for filing as soon as possible. Our Savannah administrative license suspension attorneys are ready to aid you immediately.
