A speeding ticket is often looked at as a minor offense, but it can have very serious repercussions on one's driving record. An individual's driving privilege can be revoked for at least 30 days if convicted of:
● Driving 15 mph or over in a 55 on a road where the speed limit is 55 or above
● Driving at a speed limit greater than 80 mph
A license can be revoked for 60 days if convicted of the following:
● Two speeding tickets in one year
● Speeding plus reckless driving in one instance
Here is a chart from the official NCDMV website.
What is the Difference Between a License Suspension vs. Revocation?
A license suspension is only for a temporary amount of time, your license will still be in effect. Where as a license revocation is more serious and means your driving privileges have been terminated. If the offender meets the eligibility requirements (generally set by a revocation hearing) they can reapply for a license at the NCDMV office.
Some common ways to get your license suspended include
● Excessive Speeding
● Too many tickets over a certain threshold of time
