WHAT IS IMPLIED CONSENT IN GA?

Implied consent in Georgia refers to the legal principle that individuals who operate a motor vehicle on public roads have given their consent to be tested for alcohol or drugs if suspected of impaired driving. This means that by simply driving on Georgia roads, drivers are considered to have already agreed to submit to a chemical test if a law enforcement officer has reasonable grounds to believe they are under the influence. Refusal to take the test can result in the suspension of driving privileges. Implied consent laws are in place to deter drunk driving and ensure the safety of all road users.
