Any applicant who is younger than 18 years of age must be enrolled in and not under expulsion from a public or private school and has satisfied the attendance requirements listed in #1 and #2 below for a period of one academic year prior to application for an instruction permit or driver's license. This suspension is mandated by O.C.G.A. 40-5-22(a.1)(2).
The DDS will suspend the license of a minor who:
Any infraction of the above conduct offenses will be a one-year suspension, or the minor shall be suspended until his or her eighteenth birthday, whichever comes first.
A student can obtain a temporary driving permit from the Department of Driver Services to drive to and from work with a suspended license, if he or she has demonstrated the need for the permit. The permit would only be granted if the driver's license has been suspended for a school-related infraction or for dropping out of school.
