The key to protecting your license in the face of a driving while revoked ticket is to take the right legal path in the proper order. This might involve filing one or more motions to reopen old traffic violations before dealing with the current ticket. It might mean seeking relief on prior tickets in multiple counties. Whatever approach best suits your particular circumstances, you can depend on Criminal Defense Lawyer Wiley Nickel to plot a good path and explain it in terms you can understand.

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.

In any case, most drivers who deal with tickets for driving while revoked discover that resolving the problem themselves normally results in an additional year's suspension.  If you have a suspension we might be able to help you get a temporary driving permit.
