******You have just 10 days to appeal a license suspension in Georgia*****

If the officer kept your driver’s license and gave you a large, yellow sheet of paper, your license has been suspended and you have 10 days to appeal this license suspension.

The 10 days are TEN BUSINESS DAYS starting the day after your arrest.

Not sure if your license has been suspended because it’s still in your wallet? If you have your plastic license, call the Department of Driver Services license information line at 404-657-9300 (or check online at dds.ga.gov.) and enter your license number.  If the system says “YOU HAVE A VALID LICENSE,” you probably do not face a civil license suspension.

  • If you still aren’t sure, get legal help. If it turns out your license isn’t suspended, the cost will likely be minimal.
  • If your license is suspended, try to hire an attorney before the end of the 10-day period and have her appeal the license suspension for you.
