Elizabeth City License Suspension Lawyer

When the State of North Carolina suspends your license, it can greatly impact your ability to go to work, run errands, spend time with family, and do other things that are part of your day-to-day life. An Elizabeth City license suspension lawyer can help you get your license back by looking at the basis for the suspension and making a compelling case for the DMV hearing officer that you should keep your driving privileges. You can try to do this on your own, but you may have more success with a dedicated traffic attorney on your side.

Our firm also helps people by defending them against driving charges that can lead to license suspensions. Our experienced attorneys have what it takes to develop an effective legal strategy in cases where driving privileges are at stake.

What Can Cause a License Suspension?

A person can have their license temporarily taken away for many reasons. For example, multiple speeding tickets or reckless driving charges often have driving privilege consequences. Likewise, when you are caught driving while intoxicated or illegally transporting alcohol, a license suspension may follow.

Similarly, the government can suspend a person’s license for driving their car without a valid license or learner’s permit. Even if a conviction happens out of state, it can affect driving privileges in North Carolina.

The state also enables the government to suspend someone’s license when they accumulate too many points for breaking other driving laws (like unlawfully passing a school bus). An Elizabeth City attorney who handles license suspension cases can help you determine why your license was suspended and what to do next. We can help you get on track to have your driving privileges returned to you as quickly as possible.

Length of a License Suspension

State law allows the government to suspend a license for anywhere from a few days to a few years. It depends on the specific charge a person faces. Likewise, the suspension may last however long it takes a person to meet the conditions the government sets to get their license back or operate a vehicle.

For example, many North Carolina residents who receive what they believe to be minor speeding tickets in another state, like Virginia, may opt to simply pay the ticket without understanding the consequences. If you are charged with going more than 15 mph over the speed limit in Virginia and pre-pay the ticket, it will result in a suspension of your North Carolina driving privilege!

A license suspension attorney serving Elizabeth City is an invaluable resource for those whose licenses have been or may be suspended. An attorney can answer questions and take the steps necessary to restore driving privileges. We understand the impact it can have on someone’s life when they get their driver’s license taken away for a period of time.
