DRIVING WHILE LICENSE REVOKED

 

Was your Driver’s License so faded that you couldn’t see the expiration date? DMV line too long when you went to renew? If you’ve received a Driving While License Revoked Ticket in Greensboro, High Point or Asheboro, our Attorneys can help.

There is a new law in North Carolina with reference to Driving While License Revoked Tickets. These Charges are Misdemeanors, now however, there are two different types of the Driving While License Revoked charge.

As of December 1, 2013, a PERSON who:
1. Drives
2. A Motor Vehicle
3. On a Street or Highway
4. While His or Her License is Revoked

Commits a Class 3 Misdemeanor. If you were to go to court and enter a guilty plea to a Driving While License Revoked Charge, this would effectively REVOKE YOUR LICENSE for 1 Year.

However, if someone is charged with Driving While License Revoked, and their License is REVOKED DUE TO AN IMPAIRED DRIVING, then it’s a Class 1 Misdemeanor. For Perspective, a Class 3 Misdemeanor is the LOWEST LEVEL MISDEMEANOR, whereas a Class 1 is the Second Highest Level Misdemeanor. A conviction for Driving While License Revoked can result in Jail Time.
