DUI Q&A Booklet
Georgia lawmakers have toughened the DUI laws … If you are charged with DUI and refuse to take a breath, blood, or urine test or take the test with a result of 0.08 or greater, you have only 30 business days to request a special hearing. Failure to do so may result in a 1-year suspension of your driver’s license.
You must act now if you:
- Took the test and your blood alcohol level was 0.08 or higher
- Refused to take the test
- Tried to take the test, but they said you refused
- Were under 21 when arrested and your test result was 0.02 or higher
- Have a CDL, were in your rig when arrested, and your blood alcohol level was 0.04 or higher
- You are not sure what your blood alcohol level was

No. A DUI charge simply implies that a driver has consumed enough alcohol or any amount of drugs to make you a less safe driver. A minor traffic infraction such as failure to maintain lane, disregarding a traffic signal, failure to yield, driving too fast or too slow – combined with even a small amount of alcohol or any amount of drugs – will likely be justification for a DUI charge.
