What are the Penalties for Driving with a Suspended License in Georgia?
When it comes to driver’s license suspension, Georgia uses a point system. In general, if you accumulate 15 or more points on your driving record within 24 months and you do not attend a driver improvement clinic, your license will be suspended. Speeding, reckless driving, and other traffic violations can result in points.
On the other hand, several criminal convictions are punishable by driver’s license suspension or revocation. Common offenses include DUI, vehicular assault or homicide, and driving without insurance.
Driving with a suspended license is a crime. A first offense is a misdemeanor, punishable by a jail sentence of up to 12 months and/or a maximum fine of $1,000.
A second or third offense within five years is a high-and-aggravated misdemeanor, which carries a maximum jail term of 12 months and/or a fine of up to $2,500. A fourth or subsequent offense within five years is a felony, punishable by imprisonment for up to five years and/or a maximum fine of $5,000.
A conviction also results in a six-month extension of the original suspension. However, if you are considered a “habitual offender” (i.e., someone who had their license revoked at least three ties within five years), then the penalties may be different.
