Understanding DUI Penalties Under 21

The driving laws in Georgia are stricter, and penalties tougher on a minor facing a DUI charge. These penalties are stricter due to the inexperience and shorter driving record most minors have versus people over the age of 21. If you are under 21, and arrested for driving under the influence in Georgia, it is important to understand the legal consequences you may face.

A GA DUI conviction for a person under the legal drinking age can result in permanent damage to your driving record. A DUI conviction could also affect your future by causing problems when applying for a job or attempting to obtain credit.
