How to NOT Get Your Driver’s License Suspended

If a judge suspends your license as punishment for a DUI, DWI, or excessive traffic violation, a license suspension can throw your entire life into chaos. Many rely on driving to work, grocery shop, and caring for their children or family members.

The key to avoiding this upheaval is working with an experienced attorney not to get your license suspended.

What Are Causes For License Suspension?

Before you can avoid license suspension, it’s essential to understand what infractions may cause a court to revoke your driver’s license.

In North Carolina, if you:

  • Accumulate too many points for traffic violations over three years
  • Exceed the speed limit by more than 15 mph
  • Refuse a breath test
  • Drive while impaired (DWI) also known as (Driving Under the Influence)
  • Race and reckless drive
  • Fail to carry liability insurance
  • Other various traffic violations

How long a judge may suspend your license will depend on the severity of the infraction and any previous marks against your record.

How Do I Avoid License Suspension?

To avoid a license suspension after committing one of the above infractions, reach out to the Knox Law Center right away. An experienced traffic violation and criminal defense attorney can work with prosecutors and DMV officers to minimize your overall punishment.

The best way to avoid a license suspension is to keep your traffic infraction points down and not receive any tickets. But if you do get access, most states allow drivers to complete traffic school or a defensive driving school for first violations within a certain period of time.

Your options will range from settling to being granted a limited driving permit that allows you to drive to certain places, such as work, called a “hardship license.” If you were convicted of a DUI/DWI, the court might require an ignition interlock device (IID) on your car to allow you to continue driving.

The Knox Law Center attorneys will work to show you are not a danger to society, and a license suspension would cause undue hardship on your life. Come prepared for your complimentary consultation with any records you have because your previous actions will affect a license suspension.

If you already had your license suspended, the Know Law Center can help, too. Reach out to our offices right away for a free consultation to discuss your case.

Exceptional Legal Representation & True Professional, Genuine Individual

I first met Allen after he was recommended to me by a friend, and I couldn't be happier with the service that he provided. He demonstrated a unique attention to detail in my case, as well as expressed a genuine interest in me as a person. Through a great deal of hard work, Allen was able to appeal my case and get all of my charges dismissed. I couldn't be more grateful for him and his assistant, Sherry, for their legal and personal support during such a difficult time. Hiring Allen was the greatest decision I've ever made, and I would recommend Allen to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation.

The most amazing lawyer, a true gem & winner

Allen is the best lawyer I've ever met! His character is genuine, and there is a warmth about him that makes you feel so comfortable. If you ever get into a situation with DWI, and feel truly remorseful for what happened, HIRE him for the BEST chance possible. I previously spent 6000$ on an attorney who just didn't feel like they really gave me the personal care that I needed. They were only in it for the money. After hearing raving reviews about Allen, I fired my lawyer and took a leap of faith with Allen. Even though I had to pay two separate times and could not get a refund for the previous lawyer, IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! He won my case with dignity, respect, and care and I am forever thankful to him for this.
