Cobb County DUI Yellow DS-1205 Form
Did you know that after you are arrested for driving under the influence in Cobb County, you only have 10 days to request a hearing in order to save your driver’s license? It’s true—after being arrested for failing or refusing to take a chemical test, your license may be automatically suspended if you do not request a hearing within this fixed timeframe.
Included in the paperwork you receive with your DUI citation is the Cobb County DUI Yellow DS-1205 form, which informs you that your driving privileges will be suspended if you do not request a hearing within 10 business days after the date of your arrest. Requesting a hearing can be a fairly complicated procedure. However an experienced DUI defense attorney can ensure the form is properly completed and provide proof of delivery to the Department of Driver services to protect your rights.
The outcome of the administrative hearing is extremely important, as it means the difference between keeping your license and receiving a lengthy suspension. A DUI attorney will represent you in this hearing to fight for your driving privileges. Fortunately, in almost 90% of administrative cases, the prosecuting attorney will not oppose your request if the arresting officer does not show up to court. This fact can also be used in your favor in the criminal case.
If you fail to request an administrative hearing within 10 days, your license will automatically be suspended on the 31st day after your DUI arrest. Depending on the circumstances, your license will probably be suspended for one year.
