Avoiding License Suspension Due to DWI
North Carolina has strict DWI laws, including an automatic 30 day license suspension for any DWI charge. That means that even if you are completely innocent, you will have your driver's license suspended until the case proceeds. After 10 days, you will be able to apply for limited driving privileges under certain circumstances.
In order to quality for these privileges, you must meet the following:
- You had a valid driver's license at the time of the offense
- You do not have any pervious or outstanding DWI charges outside the current ones
- You completed a Substance Abuse Assessment at a certified center
If granted, you will be able to drive within the 30 day suspension. There are driving restrictions that apply, which means if you need additional hours outside of the ones provided, you will need to provide appropriate documentation to prove this.
What if I have been convicted of DWI?
If you are convicted of DWI, your license will be suspended for 12 months. However, you may be able to qualify for limited driving privileges during this suspension period. You must fulfill the same requirements listed above, and after your conviction, you can petition the court for these privileges.
There are also several other requirements that must be met, which is why it is more crucial than ever to obtain legal counsel. Don't put your driving privileges on the line!
