Out of State DUI Attorney in Atlanta
DUIs Affect Drivers Across State Lines
Being arrested and charged with a DUI outside of your home state can affect your driver's license. In addition to the penalties you face in Georgia, you may also be penalized from your home state for a DUI offense. It is vital to take your DUI charges seriously and retain a knowledgeable Atlanta DUI attorney so that you can be effectively defended.
While the state does not have the authority to suspend or revoke an out of state license, it is part of an interstate driver's license compact. Under this agreement, all participating states must inform the driver's "home" state of any DUI conviction. You can also expect our state to report the conviction to your home state, even if it does not participate in the compact. The state can also revoke your driving privileges within the state if you possess a valid driver's license from another state.
