FAQ: Can I get a Georgia DUI conviction removed from my record? Under current Georgia law, once you are convicted of a DUI, that DUI will remain on your criminal and driving record for the rest of your life. There is not a procedure in our law that provides for the removal of a DUI conviction from your records.
Q: I refused to submit to the requested blood test after I was arrested. Will it be possible for me to keep my driver’s license? Let’s assume that you have a Georgia driver’s license. If you do not have a prior DUI conviction within the last 5 years, you will most likely be able to obtain a limited driving permit even if you are convicted of a DUI. However, there is some work that needs to be done. We can help.
Q: I refused to submit field sobriety tests. Can my license be suspended for that? No, refusal of pre-arrest tests (preliminary breath tests and field sobriety tests) cannot be used as the basis for an administrative license suspension.
Q: My case has been pending for longer than 2 years. Will the statute of limitations result in a dismissal of my DUI? If the case is pending, the statute of limitations has most likely been met. So, it probably will not result in a dismissal of your DUI. However, there may be other problems for the State, such as a violation of your constitutional right to a speedy trial.
