Georgia DUI Limited Permit or Work Permit

O.C.G.A. § 40-5-64 provides the terms of use for a limited permit issued after a 1st DUI within 5 years (from the date of prior offense). It is important to recognize that not every person convicted of a DUI is eligible for a limited permit. If this is not your 1st DUI conviction within 5 years, you may not be eligible for a limited permit or work permit. If this is not your 1st DUI conviction within 5 years, you will not be immediately eligible for a limited permit or work permit. The conditions listed below apply to a Georgia DUI limited permit issued after a 1st DUI conviction within a 5-year period:

(1) Going to his or her place of employment;

(2) Receiving scheduled medical care or obtaining prescription drugs;

(3) Attending a college or school at which he or she is regularly enrolled as a student;

(4) Attending regularly scheduled sessions or meetings of support organizations for persons who have addiction or abuse problems related to alcohol or other drugs, which organizations are recognized by the commissioner;

(5) Attending under court order any driver education or improvement school or alcohol or drug program or course approved by the court which entered the judgment of conviction resulting in suspension of his or her driver’s license or by the commissioner;

(6) Attending court, reporting to a probation office or officer, or performing community service; or

(7) Transporting an immediate family member who does not hold a valid driver’s license for work, medical care, or prescriptions or to school.
