Hello,

My name is Fran and I am a criminal lawyer.

You cannot get a license anywhere in the country until you get your driving privileges reinstated in Georgia.

What happened with the 2 DUI cases? Did you complete all of the requirements that were imposed on you when you were sentenced? And have you waited out the suspension period the judge sentenced you to as well, If so, you have to apply for reinstatement of your license. The state will not automatically restore your driving priviliges. Here's how Georgia says you can get your license reinstated. (See link) This article will walk you through it a bit more thoroughly.
