Under 21 DUI Charges in Atlanta
- I am a teenage driver, under 21. Am I treated differently?
Yes. First, you are considered DUI if you register above a .02 on the state’s breath test. Second, your penalties are different than those of persons over 21:
- If you register below .08, you lose your license for 6 months, with no limited permit and you must serve at least 20 hours community service.
- If you register above .08, you lose your license for a full year with no limited permit; you also must serve 24 hours in jail, and perform a minimum of 40 hours community service.
