Failure to Appear in Court Can Result in License Suspension

There are several ways to get your license suspended or revoked in North Carolina: any DWI conviction without applying for a hardship license, accumulating too many points against your license, or even failing to show up for a court date if you haven't paid the ticket beforehand.  Many clients are surprised to learn that they are driving without a valid license simply because they didn't pay an old speeding ticket or minor traffic citation.
