What is a hardship license in Georgia?
A hardship license is administered by the order of courts to an individual who has had their driver’s license suspended or revoked. It is important to note that these include restricted licenses that only permit the applicant to operate their vehicle during the period of suspension to make a livelihood or sustain life’s essentials. For instance, with a hardship license, you may be able to do things like attend school, go to work, or attend medical treatments. You will want to recognize that each state has different acknowledgments of hardship in its own way and the restriction may differ state by state.
Georgia drivers who have suspended licenses may be eligible to receive limited driving privileges while waiting for the reinstatement of their license. Hardship licenses in Georgia permit motorists to drive to medical facilities, school, work, and other important places.
Who is eligible for a hardship license in Georgia?
There are a number of requirements that can enable a driver who has had their license suspended to receive a hardship license in Georgia. Some of these requirements include the following:
- Drivers who have had their license suspended for a first conviction
- Drivers who have had their license suspended for a first or second DUI conviction
- Drivers who have had their license suspended for a first or second point suspension
- Drivers will also be required to prove to the court that they are suffering a hardship. They will need to prove to the court that they do not have a means of getting to school, work, a medical facility, or attending a court-ordered program such as drug or alcohol treatment programs.
In the event that a driver has been convicted of a second offense, he or she may be required to meet certain requirements to get a hardship license such as establishing and using an ignition interlock device in their vehicles. They may also be instructed to complete a drug and alcohol awareness and treatment program to be qualified for the ignition interlock device in Georgia.
