Georgia will often suspend your GA driver’s license administratively. If an administrative suspension is initiated, you have 10 business days to appeal the suspension. Therefore, Saturday, Sunday and any recognized holidays do not figure into the 10 day calculations. The letter simply needs to assert your desire to appeal the suspension of you driver’s license. It will act as a 30-day permit to drive.
