    Answered . For drivers license purposes, if this is a first DUI on the Georgia license, it is be considered a first DUI. For punishment purposes it will be considered a second offense. You need to hire a qualified DUI lawyer.

    Answered . The GA DDS will consider this a first offense as far as calculating your license suspension time. If the court knows about your prior from 4 years ago they will consider this new arrest a 2nd DUI within a 5 year period.

    Answered . Yes and no. Yes for punishment, no for your license. When you say you were "just arrested" what do you mean? 3 days? 3 weeks?
