Carteret County Driving While License Revoked Attorney

There are many situations in which your driver license can be temporarily or permanently revoked. Accumulating too many points from DWI convictions, being ticketed for excessive speeding or even being charged with failure to appear can all result in the court revoking your license and thus your ability to freely transport yourself and your loved ones. Driving is considered to be a privilege, but for many people, it is a necessity. Getting to and from work, performing daily errands or even getting medical treatment can all rest on the crux of having a license – what happens when this is taken away?

Brief Overview of Charges Relating to Driving While License Revoked

In North Carolina, it is considered to be a Class 1 misdemeanor to be found operating a motor vehicle with a revoked driver's license.
