Driver’s License Suspension, Registration Suspension, Revocation And Reinstatement
If you are facing license suspension, seeking legal counsel is a must. Under Georgia law, there are many offenses that put your license at risk. If convicted of any of the following charges, you face a mandatory suspension by the Department of Driver Services:
- Homicide by vehicle
- Any felony in the commission of which a motor vehicle is used
- Failure to pay court-ordered child support
- Using a motor vehicle in fleeing or attempting to elude an officer
- Fraudulent application for a license or fictitious use of a license
- Hit-and-run or leaving the scene of an accident
- Operating a motor vehicle with a revoked, canceled or suspended registration
- Felony forgery relating to an identification document
- Refusal to take a chemical test in conjunction with a DUI

Driving While License Suspended Or Revoked Or After Insurance Or Registration Has Lapsed
Many people are unaware of the potentially serious consequences of driving with a revoked or suspended driver’s license, but it is a serious offense in Georgia. If you get stopped, and the officer discovers that your driver’s license is invalid, it means one thing: an automatic trip to the jailhouse.
The first time you are convicted, consequences could mean a one-year revocation of your driver’s license. A second conviction could mean two years of revocation, and a third conviction could mean permanent revocation of your license.
And revocation of a driver’s license can have a serious impact on your life. For many people, it means not being able to drive to and from a job they depend on. It can also make simple errands — like a doctor’s appointment or a trip to the grocery store — seem impossible.
Revocation Of Driving Privilege
If you drive without insurance in the state of Georgia, or if you drive after your vehicle registration has lapsed, it can result in the suspension of your license. If you fail to appear at the time you are required to be in court for any charge, it can also result in the suspension of your license.
Having your driving privilege reinstated requires coordination between court personnel and the Department of Driver Services. If you are unfamiliar with the reinstatement process, you may find yourself placed under arrest after going to court to deal with charges that resulted in your suspension. That is because your driving privilege isn’t reinstated until you get the approval from the Department of Driver Services. If you drive away from the court before your driving privilege is reinstated, you WILL go to jail.
Because of these serious consequences, working with an experienced lawyer is critical to your success when you have been accused of driving with license revoked. At the Teiger Law Center, we use years of experience to protect your rights and your driver’s license in the Georgia legal system.
