The State of Georgia imposes serious penalties for drivers who are under the age of 21 that receive traffic citations. If you, or a family member, receive a traffic ticket while under the age of 21, you need to discuss your citation with a traffic ticket lawyer.
The State of Georgia will suspend the driver’s license of all drivers under the age of 21 who receive 4 points in a single traffic ticket. Additionally, the accumulation of points will quickly suspend the license of a driver who is under the age of 21. If under 18, the accumulation of 4 or more points in 12 months will suspend the driver’s license. Once 18 years old, the accumulation of 15 points will suspend the driver’s license. Importantly, one 4 point offense will still suspend a driver’s license even at, or over, the age of 18. Finally, drivers under 21 are not able to plead “Nolo” in order to avoid points associated with a traffic offense.
