Under 21 Years Old DUI Consequences in Georgia

This is simply a summary of the range of punishment available to the judge in setting the sentence for a DUI offense.  These penalties apply only to drivers under the age of 21 years.

A person under the age of 21 years cannot enter a plea of nolo contendere to a DUI offense.  Nolo Contendere pleas are rarely used for any DUI cases any more, so this limitation is not really important.

IMPORTANT:  The license of a person convicted of or pleading to DUI under the age of 21 will not merely be suspended, it will be REVOKED.

The under 21 driver is punished the same as an over 21 DUI offender except that any community service must be ordered to be completed within sixty days of sentencing.
