Georgia State Regulations

How Do I Regain Driving Privileges in Georgia?

In Georgia, offenders may be able to get a restricted driver’s license (limited driving permit). The limitations allow offenders to drive to and from school, work, doctor’s visits, community service, and the grocery store. To get the permit, offenders must meet a variety of criteria. This includes:

  • Serve the suspension period mandated by the court (up to two years for repeat offenders).
  • Pay all necessary fines.
  • Attend DUI school, complete a clinical evaluation and any other mandated treatment programs, and provide a certificate of proof.
  • Install an IID from an approved provider.
  • Submit the license fee and any other applicable fees to the appropriate parties.
  • Show proof of SR-22 insurance.

There may be additional requirements before a license is granted, depending on the offense.

Program maintenance:

  • Bring your IID in for monthly calibration service as indicated on the device, every 30 days, as required by DMV to maintain good standing with the IID Program.

Please keep in mind that the steps listed above provide an overview of what is required to restore your license. Please check with your state’s website for more complete details.
