Georgia law has been written to protect our residents from the potentially serious consequences of truckers with fraudulent licenses.

Issuing a Fraudulent License is a Crime in Georgia

Just last summer, two people in Marietta were convicted of Georgia driver’s license fraud.  The men were convicted for conspiring to issue Georgia driver’s licenses to people who did not qualify for them. Both men were sentenced to jail terms, and one will face deportation.

Drivers May Also Face Penalties

Drivers, including truck drivers, who operate a vehicle without a valid license may also be subject to penalties.  Those penalties may be criminal or civil in nature.  For example, if a truck driver without a license causes an accident, then the driver may be sued for damages.  Some truck drivers mistakenly assume that it is not worth the expense or trouble to go through the legal licensing process.  This often proves to be a grave mistake with serious consequences.
