The best way to avoid points on your driver’s license is to have the speeding charge dismissed. If you are going to plead guilty to a DUI, then the prosecutor may be more willing to “drop” (“merge” or “nolle prosse”) the speeding charge. Another possibility is to have the speed reduced. If the prosecutor drops your speed to 14 miles per hour over the speed limit (instead of the 18 miles per hour over you are charged with), then you will not get points on your license. You also may wish to explore a plea of "nolo contendere." A nolo plea (or “no contest" plea) allows you to keep the points off your license. You can only use a nolo once every five years in Georgia.
