Suspended or Revoked License Attorney in Wake County

If you have a suspended or revoked license in Wake County, North Carolina there are new options available to obtain a limited driving privilege. Having a revoked license is like being in a hole. When you find yourself in a hole the best advice is to stop digging.  Simply paying off tickets or continuing to drive and accumulating more tickets may result in a permanent revocation and possible jail time. Paying off a ticket or pleading guilty to a moving violation while suspended tacks on an additional year of revocation.

Do Not Plead Guilty or Pay Your Ticket By Mail

Pleading guilty to “Driving While License Revoked” (DWLR) can also result in a large fine, 120 days in jail, and a criminal conviction of up to a Class 1 misdemeanor. After 3 moving violations while revoked you become permanently revoked, which means you will not be eligible for a DMV hearing for 3 years.  Generally there is a better deal than paying your ticket. Often these charges can be dismissed with proof of a current license and the right paperwork.
