Suspension vs. Revocation

Suspension and Revocation are two legal terms that can be confusing. When you have been arrested for a DUI in Georgia it may be hard for you to understand whether your license is going to be suspended or revoked. The truth is, it depends on several different factors. Statesboro DUI attorney Matt Hube will defend you against a Georgia DUI, gather all of your driving records, and explain whether you face a license suspension or revocation.

If you tested .08 or higher BAC or refused to take a breath test, your license in Georgia will be suspended. Simply put, a suspension is when your driving privileges are suspended temporary for a determined amount of time. After that time has elapsed and other conditions of the suspension completely met, you will be able to drive again. A revocation, however, is when your license has become completely invalid. This occurs when you either have too many points on your Georgia license or another triggering event takes place that results in a Georgia license revocation. Once the revocation period has passed, you may be able to reapply for a new Georgia driver’s license, however the period of revocation can be as little as a few years and as long as your entire lifetime. Reapplying for your license after a revocation has many steps, but also requires that you retake all of the tests and meet every standard in obtaining a driver’s license in Georgia.

Whether you face a license suspension in Georgia or the complete revocation of your license depends on the specific facts of your Georgia DUI case. Using your prior driving and arrest records and reviewing all of the facts in your case will give Statesboro DUI attorney Matt Hube a better idea of exactly what you are up against. The sooner you call Matt Hube, the sooner you will have the necessary information about whether your license will be suspended or revoked. Don’t waste any time, call now!
