Resolved Question:

I am a Florida resident and have a pending DUI case in Georgia. If convicted, besides the fines, comunity service and suspension of Georgia driving privlages I understand that my Florida license will also be suspended. How long will it be suspended, will it be automatic or will it require a hearing?How long before I can apply for a hardship license?

Hello,


Thank you for your information. I am happy to assist you.



Florida will give the Georgia judgment reciprocity. This means that Florida will suspend your license as the Georgia court decrees. The suspension is typically automatic and you can immediately apply for a hardship license.


I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.



Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.


Thank you,
