Suspended License Attorney in Raleigh

Committed to Protecting Your Driving Privileges

With how ubiquitous driving is in nearly everyone’s life, it can be easy to forget that driving is a privilege, not a right. There are several missteps that a person can take, not all of which pertain directly to driving, which could result in your license being suspended.

Many agencies can impose this penalty, including the Department of Motor Vehicles, Secretary of State, Department of Revenue, or Motor Vehicle Division.

There are several things that could result in license suspension, such as:

  • Accumulating too many driving record points
  • Receiving multiple traffic violations or speeding tickets
  • Getting a DWI
  • Failing to appear in court or pay fees
  • Failing to pay child support

Let us help you get your license back as quickly as possible! Contact us today to schedule a free consultation and find out what we can do for you.

Penalties for Driving without a Valid License

There are several further consequences you can expect to see if you are caught continuing to drive after your license has been suspended. You could be facing a Class 1 misdemeanor, with penalties that include the possibility of jail time and fines.

The sentence facing someone convicted of driving with a suspended license depends heavily on if they have previous convictions. Rather than risking these penalties, we strongly recommend that you instead bring our team in to help you avoid getting your license suspended in the first place.

License Reinstatement

If your license has been suspended, there are a few steps that you can take to reinstate it:

Once your suspension period has ended, you will be required to submit certain documentation and pay applicable fees before reinstating your license. While some reinstatement options may be available online, many will require you to visit your local DMV. Contact us for more information or for help reinstating your license.

Quick Turnaround Time to Help You Get Where You Need to Go

A driver’s license suspension becomes part of your official, permanent North Carolina driving record. A revoked driver’s license is even more difficult because your privileges are removed for a longer period of time.

At Cotten Law Firm, we are prepared to fight to reinstate your driving privileges and help guide you through the process, from fines to hearings to appeals.

If you need help regaining your driving privileges, contact our Raleigh criminal defense attorneys today at (919) 587-8544.
