Experienced DUI Attorneys Serving the Greater Atlanta Area

What is the 10-Day Letter?

If the arresting officer files a Form 1205 with the State Department of Driver Services, you only have TEN (10) BUSINESS DAYS to appeal the administrative suspension. Failure to file the 10-day letter will result in the administrative suspension automatically going into effect and you will not be able to contest the suspension. If you refused to take the state administered test, a failure to file a proper appeal will result in your license being suspended for a 12 month period with no temporary or work permits being granted. Accordingly, it is imperative that people arrested for DUI seek legal assistance from a DUI lawyer as soon as possible to learn their rights and file the appropriate appeal.

If you would like to discuss your DUI arrest or administrative license suspension with one of our experienced criminal law attorneys please call our offices (404) 586-9848 (Atlanta) or (706) 216-7228 (Dawsonville).
