      Georgia Requirements

      Georgia allows some offenders to get a restricted license following a DUI offense. The offender must meet all criteria, and install an ignition interlock device (IID) from an approved provider. This guide will cover how the interlock process works in Georgia.

      The GA Ignition Interlock Program

      Georgia treats DUI offenses seriously. The legal BAC (blood alcohol content) limit is .08 percent. Drivers found to have a BAC at or above this amount are considered to be driving under the influence. Administrative penalties could include a license suspension. Offenders who install an ignition interlock device may be able to regain driving privileges during the suspension period.

      What Happens if I Get a DUI in Georgia?

      In Georgia, the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) level is .08 percent, and offenders with a BAC above that limit risk a variety of penalties. These penalties increase for repeat offenders and depend on the circumstances of the incident. There are harsher penalties if the incident causes damage or injury, for example. The penalties imposed on offenders may change depending on the circumstances of the offense. For example, penalties are different if the offender is under 21 years old, or if there is damage or injury caused by the incident.

      First DUI Offense

      • License reinstatement fee of $210
      • Fine of $300-$1,000
      • One year of jail time possible
      • May be required to attend DUI school
      • 40 hours of community service, minimum
      • License suspended for up to 12 months
      • Ignition interlock may be required to regain license

      Second DUI Offense (Within 5 Years of First Offense)

      • 48 hours mandatory jail time, with the possibility of serving 90 days to one year
      • Fine of $600-$1,000
      • Community service required for 30 days minimum
      • $210 license reinstatement fee
      • License suspended for three years
      • Must be evaluated at a clinic and may be required to complete a treatment program

      Third DUI Offense (Within 5 Years of Second Offense)

      • 15 days jail time minimum
      • Minimum 30 days of community service
      • Driver’s license revoked for five years
      • $1,000 to $5,000 in fines
      • Offender’s name, picture, and address is published in the local newspaper (offender must pay for placement)
      • Offender is categorized as a habitual violator and the license plate for their car is seized and sent to the Department of Motor Vehicle Safety
      • Offender must undergo a clinical evaluation and may be required to complete a substance abuse treatment program
      • Interlock may be required to regain license

      How Do I Regain Driving Privileges in Georgia?

      In Georgia, offenders may be able to get a restricted driver’s license, also known as a limited driving permit. The limitations allow offenders to drive to and from school, work, doctor’s visits, community service, and the grocery store. To get the permit, offenders must meet a variety of criteria. This criteria includes:

      • Serve the suspension period mandated by the court (up to two years for repeat offenders)
      • Pay any necessary fines
      • Attend DUI school, complete a clinical evaluation and any other mandated treatment programs, and provide a certificate of proof
      • Install an IID from an approved provider like Intoxalock
      • Submit the license fee and any other applicable fees to the appropriate parties
      • Show proof of SR-22 insurance

      There may be additional requirements before a license is granted, depending on the circumstances of the offense.

      Georgia FAQs

      An ignition interlock device is a gadget that combines technology and responsibility by enforcing sobriety before allowing the ignition to be turned on.

      Customers may be required to install an ignition interlock device following a drunk driving conviction. The device must be from an approved provider from Intoxalock.

      The costs of the device can vary depending on the type of vehicle you have, your chosen interlock provider, and the type of device you install. Customers in Georgia pay a deposit of $54.99 to $100 plus a setup fee of $29.99. The monthly lease costs $49.99 to $69.99.

      When you are ready to install, you will make an appointment at the Intoxalock service center of your choosing. At your appointment, technicians will install your device and walk you through how to use it for BrAC testing. 

      GA drivers license
      Provide name of registered owner if they are not

      You will need your Georgia driver’s license. If you don’t own the vehicle you are installing the device in, you’ll need to provide the name of the registered vehicle owner.

      Our state specialists can help you make an appointment. Intoxalock has more than 50 locations throughout Georgia. You will need to return to the location for regular device calibration, so keep this in mind when choosing your location

      Your state monitoring authority will provide the removal date - you will need to contact them. Once you have approval you can make your removal appointment.

      You will need to bring your Comprehensive Moni.oring Report with you (that you have also brought to each calibration). The service center will need to sign and stamp the report at your last calibration, and then the GA DDS will authorize removal. 

      You will need to get the eligibility certificate from your monitoring authority to have the device removed.

      Fines and DUI school are penalties DUI offenders may face in Georgia.

      No, Georgia does not provide financial assistance for interlock users.
