Like many people in North Carolina, you might rely on driving for accomplishing most things in your life. Whether you need to get to work, drop off your kids at school or pick up groceries, you rely on your vehicle virtually every day. Therefore losing your driving privileges can negatively impact almost every other area of your life, which makes fighting a license suspension or revocation a priority. 

Reasons you might lose your license 

Some drivers do not realize that they can actually lose their licenses. It can come as a big shock to find out that driving might soon be off the table. Here are a just a few reasons why you could lose your driving privileges: 

  • Multiple traffic offenses 
  • Drunk driving charges 
  • Failing to appear in court for traffic related offenses 

If you think the idea of fighting a revocation or suspension feels like too much and plan to continue driving even without your license, you could be in for even bigger consequences. You can face criminal charges for driving on a revoked or suspended license. This could also lead to longer periods of suspension too, further complicating your situation. 

Since driving is necessary to your daily life, you need to take a proactive approach to your defense. Dealing with the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles — DMV — can be tricky though.
