Traffic Ticket Georgia Driver’s License Lawyer

Georgia will suspend any driver’s license if they accumulate 15 or more points during any 24 month period. Georgia cannot suspend an out of state driver’s license, but they can take away their privilege to drive in Georgia, and that action will be reported to the drivers home state if they are a member of the Non-Resident Violator Compact (NRVC).

Below is the point schedule for some of the most common traffic offenses in Georgia. If you have on of these, or any other criminal charges resulting from a traffic stop, call Patrick Kunes today at (229) 382-4900 for a free consultation.
