UNDERAGE DUI LAWS & PENALTIES IN GEORGIA

In Georgia, you can be charged with a DUI if you are under the age of 21 and have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .02 percent or more. That is because anyone under 21 years old is legally prohibited from consuming and purchasing alcohol. Therefore, a low BAC can still result in criminal charges.

A first-time underage DUI is punishable by a jail sentence between 24 hours and 12 months, fines of up to $1,000, at least 20 hours of community service, and a driver’s license suspension for six months.

A second-time underage DUI within 10 years carries a jail term ranging from 72 hours to 12 months, a minimum of 30 days of community service, fines of up to $1,000, and license suspension between 18 months and five years.

A third underage DUI offense within 10 years is punishable by a jail sentence between 15 days and 12 months, fines of up to $5,000, at least 30 days of community service, and license suspension ranging from 18 months to five years.

HOW DOES A DUI AFFECT YOUR INSURANCE RATES?

In Georgia, you may have to pay higher insurance rates if you have a DUI on your record. The amount that your rates will increase will depend on the circumstances of your DUI, but you may have to pay higher rates for three years if you have a DUI conviction. If you are under the age of 21 and have a DUI, your rates will increase for six years.

HOW CAN I AVOID A DUI IF I’M UNDER 21?

If you are under the age of 21, there are steps that you can take to avoid being charged with a DUI. First, you should never drink and drive. Even if you do not feel that you have had too much to drink, you should not get behind the wheel. You should also avoid driving with other people in your vehicle who are intoxicated. If you are pulled over and the police officer suspects that you have been drinking, you should not refuse to take a chemical test. If you do, you could face a one-year license suspension.

I love this Law Group, you can trust their work and words. They will do everything in their power to help you win your case, better yet even dismiss it if can. They also work on my husband’s case and even tho they set a date they got it settled way before the date they give, that’s how fast they work. Truly a fast honest working group. I thank them for their awesome work. Definitely recommend.

These are the people who you want to represent you!! Kim, Michael, Brittani, Sophia, etc. thank you all so much for your dedication to your work and caring for others. This was my second case with Kim as my lawyer and she got both of them dismissed (I only went to court ONE time for two cases and didn’t say a word to the judge). This firm is truly amazing at what they do and I can’t thank them enough. If I could rate 6 stars, I would.
