It can be a daunting experience receiving a revocation notice from North Carolina DMV or having your license confiscated and being charged with a Driving While License Revoked (DWLR). A revoked license can wreak havoc on your ability to get to work, take your children to school, and many other aspects of your personal life.
Unfortunately, North Carolina is one of the easiest states to lose your license. There are many different revocation statutes and ways to lose your license. Some of the most common are:
- Driving While Impaired (DWI)
- Accumulation of 12 License Points
- Driving While License Revoked for Impaired Revocation
- High Speed - Speeding Tickets
- Failure to Appear (FTA) Failure to Comply (FTC)
- Conviction of Moving Violation During Period of Suspension
- Certain Out of State Convictions
If your license has been revoked it is extremely important to speak with an experienced traffic lawyer to discuss your options. It is all too common that a clerk of court or person at DMV will tell you to simply go pay off your tickets. Note that this is not qualified legal advice. The scenario that happens way to often is that, upon this poor advice, you would go down to the court house and pay the tickets (which often costs thousands of dollars). You would then go to DMV to reinstate your driver’s license and, three days letter, receive notice from DMV that your license is then revoked for a longer period of time. Do not take this risk; at Cotten Law we offer free consultations and will be able to tell you if we can help.
Hiring an experienced traffic attorney can save you literally thousands of dollars when you have a suspended license for missed court dates. If you have been convicted of a DWI, we can also discuss the possibility of a limited driving privilege (LDP). Attorney Cotten has hundreds of reviews from satisfied clients.
