Georgia DUI charge is not cheap, no matter how you look at it. The fines and surcharges alone frequently top $1,000.00. In addition, you will usually have community service eating away at your time, alcohol classes, a substance abuse evaluation, a risk reduction program (DUI school), and probation supervision fees to be paid. These additional requirements will easily run another $1200.00-$1700.00. In all, you’re looking at somewhere in the neighborhood of $2,000.00-$3,000.00 in court ordered costs alone.
