Steps to Obtaining a Limited Driving Permit During Your Suspension:
You won’t formally apply for a limited driving permit for a first offense. Your judge will determine whether you’re eligible based on factors like your age, offense number, and how long your license must be suspended.
Second and Subsequent Offenses
In the state of Georgia, repeat DUI offenders within a five-year period must have an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicle to regain driving privileges. Under certain circumstances, a second-time offender may qualify for a limited permit after 120 days of the one-year suspension. A third-time offender may be eligible after two years of suspension. To be eligible you must:
- Serve mandatory suspension time (the required period before interlock may be installed).
- Be enrolled in a DUI court program or in clinical treatment.
- Complete a clinical evaluation from an approved provider.
- Complete a DUI school program.
- Make an appointment to have your ignition interlock installed by calling toll-free 800-499-0994.
- Pay all fines.
- Call the Department Of Driver Services on 678-413-8400, or toll-free at 866-754-3687 to get your permit, or visit one of the DDS Customer Service Centers that offer full reinstatements.
- If you prefer, submit a letter requesting reinstatement requirements to the Georgia Department of Driver Services, Post Office Box 80447, Conyers, Ga. 30013. This request must contain your name as it appears on your driver’s license, license number, date of birth, correct mailing address, and your signature.
