DWI Assessments Expire After Six Months

In Criminal, Trafficby GWAO

If you have been charged with a DWI (Driving While Impaired) charge in North Carolina, you may be required to complete an assessment and treatment.  An assessment counts as a mitigating factor is convicted, but is a mandatory requirement for a driving privilege.

Pre-trial driving privileges are obtained within the first 30 days after being charged.  And assessment required at this time may expire prior to the court date.

If convicted, a new assessment (and the fees associated with it) will be required.  Under current North Carolina Statutory Authority, an alcohol assessment is only valid for six months.

If you have been charged with a DWI or need to obtain a limited driving privilege, contact the attorneys at Garrett, Walker and Aycoth at 336-379-0539.  We can help!
