No. When the officer takes your driver's license, you should have been given either a DDS-1205 form or a 180-day permit. Many of my client's immediately try to get a new license to serve as identification, and that is illegal.
When a person goes the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS), they are asked whether their license is being held by a court or law enforcement. The question is in written form, and the answer is under penalty of perjury (a felony). The only way the DDS will issue a new license is if that person does not respond to the question honestly. Frankly, the risk of being caught is not worth it.
The process of restoring a person's driving privilege involves the appeal of the automatic license suspension (ALS) by filing an appeal, or what is called a "ten-day letter." After the petition is filed, the Office of State Administrative Hearings (OSAH) will set a date for the hearing. Keep in mind that this hearing is separate and apart from the arraignment in the criminal DUI case.
Contact our office within ten days of your Georgia DUI Arrest and we will file your license appeal for you.
