The Act amends several Code sections to correct inconsistencies in Georgia's DUI and drivers' license revocation laws. More importantly, it alters some provisions that were created in the 1999 Act, known as Heidi's Law, regarding the use of an automobile ignition interlock device (IID). The Act allows a concurrent running of license revocation and the administrative suspension period for individuals under twenty-one years of age. Additionally, the Act increases the mandatory suspension of a driver's license to ten months for a person convicted of two DUIs within five years and eliminates the limited driving permits that were previously available to such individual after 120 days. Finally, the Act changed many provisions related to IIDs, making an IID a necessary condition of probation for an individual who wants a probatory license.
