Striving To Reinstate Your Suspended/Revoked Driver's License

For most people, driving is a way of life. It is their main source of transportation to and from work, to school, grocery shopping and to other daily activities. Driver's license suspension or revocation can have a significant effect on all aspects of their life.

But, it is important to remember that driving is a privilege. The courts often suspend driver's licenses in traffic violations and DWI cases in concern for the safety of others on the road.

Driver's License Suspension Defense

In North Carolina, the court may suspend a driver's license for a variety of reasons:

  • Accumulating too many points for traffic violations over a three-year period
  • Exceeding the speed limit by more than 15 mph
  • Refusing a breath test
  • Driving while impaired (DWI)
  • Racing and reckless driving
  • Failure to carry liability insurance
  • Other various traffic violations

The length of the suspension period depends on the violation and existence of aggravating factors. For example, a first-time DWI conviction will suspend a license for one year. A second DWI offense within three years of the first offense may result in license suspension for four years. Similarly, the steps one must take to be eligible for license reinstatement differ with each charge.

Our traffic violation and criminal defense lawyers work with prosecutors and DMV officers to minimize the effect of a suspension as much as possible. We assert your interests in DMV hearings. We work to show that you are not a danger to society, and to demonstrate the disruption to your life if you do not have driving privileges. In some cases, we are able to convince the court to give you a limited driving permit that allows you to drive to certain places, such as to work.

If your license was suspended or revoked for any reason, our attorneys work hard to obtain the best possible outcome.
