#1. A Georgia DUI ALS is an administrative license suspension of your driver’s license. It is a separate procedure from your criminal trial. The GA DDS will suspend your license on the 31st calendar day after your drunk driving arrest IF you do not file an appeal within the first 30 calendar days.
#2. You can now elect to have an ignition interlock (IID) installed on your vehicle instead of filing for an appeal of your Georgia driver’s license suspension.
You only have 30 days after your arrest date to apply for an ignition interlock at your local Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) office but talk to an experienced DUI lawyer before taking this option.
