Georgia DUI Convictions on Driving Record
- How long do DUI’s stay on my record?
Effective July 1, 2008 ALL look back periods for punishment purposes have changed to 10 years instead of 5 years. So, if you get a DUI in Georgia after July 1, 2008 and you have a prior DUI conviction July 1998 or LATER, you would be punished as a 2nd DUI offender.
- What is expungement of a DUI charge?
Expungement is the process of legally destroying, obliterating or striking out records or information in files, computers and other depositories relating to criminal charges.
- Can a DUI be expunged in Georgia?
No, you cannot currently delete a DUI from your Georgia driving record. As of now you may only have something “expunged” if A.) You are not the person shown as being arrested. Or, B.) Charges are dropped before you are accused by entering into a pretrial agreement. Since a citation acts as an accusation, “charges” are immediate with a DUI arrest.
