DDS Hearings

Georgia DDS Hearings

Protect Your Driving Privileges with an Atlanta DUI Lawyer

In addition to facing various criminal penalties, anyone who is arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) will also face possible suspension to their driver’s license. After an arrest, you should have received a “1205” form from the arresting officer, which alerts you that your license will be administratively suspended if you don’t immediately submit a request for an administrative license suspension hearing.

As stated on the form, you must request an administrative hearing with the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) within 10 days of your arrest date. If you do not request a hearing, then you will automatically relinquish your right to challenge any administrative license penalties you face and your driver's license will be suspended. The skilled Atlanta DUI attorneys at Ross & Pines, LLC can request this hearing for you and protect your rights throughout this process.


For seasoned legal guidance and counsel throughout this process, call (888) 838-4858.


What Happens At The DDS Hearing?

DDS hearings are conducted separately from any criminal court proceedings you face. Rather than determining whether you are guilty of a criminal offense, administrative hearings solely focus on whether your license will be suspended for either refusing to submit to a breath/blood test or if your results were over a .08.

Having handled thousands of DUI cases throughout the years, our legal team is prepared to represent you during DDS hearings. Our goal is to prevent your license from being suspended.

Our goal is to prevent your license from being suspended. When you depend on driving for transportation to work, school, or everyday activities, you need to take every measure to protect your driver's license. To avoid having your license administratively suspended you should retain legal representation from our firm's Atlanta criminal defense attorneys.
