Your North Carolina Driver’s License is a privilege that may be revoked, and not a right protected by the Constitution. Your North Carolina driver’s license may be revoked by the Division of Motor Vehicles for a number of reasons. Depending on the charge, your license may be revoked for a single moving violation, a combination of violations with in a certain period of time. An excessive accumulation of DMV points, a failure to appear in court, or a failure to pay a fine, just to name a few. Many times a person will not even be aware that their license has been revoked.Driving while license revoked is not a minor traffic violation, it is a class 1 misdemeanor punishable by a maximum sentence of four months in jail. Once your license is revoked, a single conviction for a moving violation during a period of revocation will result in a one-year suspension of your driver’s license. Three convictions for driving while license revoked will result in a permanent suspension of your driver’s license.

This can get to the point where a person may become hopeless of ever resolving their mess and having their license reinstated. But, there is hope.
