Take The First Step Toward License Reinstatement After DWI Suspension

No one wants to deal with a suspended license. People rely on their vehicles for work, errands and hobbies. A suspended license can seriously complicate your life and make things more challenging for you on a daily basis. Contacting a license-revocation attorney can be a good first step in getting your license restored and returning to your normal routine.

Your license-suspension attorney can advise you on the next steps of the process and explain the necessary procedures to you. This may involve paying restoration fees. Those fees should be outlined in writing. Additionally, it might be necessary for you to reapply for a North Carolina driver’s license. This will likely involve retaking your driver’s exam and the driving test. You can regain your license, but it may take time and patience.

If your driver’s license is suspended due to DWI/DUI in Wilmington, North Carolina, you will be notified by the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) immediately in writing.

Revocation Can Result For A Number Of Reasons

Your North Carolina driver’s license can be suspended or revoked by the North Carolina DMV for a number of reasons, including:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • DWI or refusing to take a blood or breath test
  • Accumulating driver’s license points
  • As part of a criminal sentence
  • For failure to pay child support

The suspension period varies based on the reason for the suspension. The attorneys at Mason, Mason, and Smith, Attorneys at Law can advise you on your level of suspension and steps to take for reinstatement in your particular case.

What The Steps For Reinstatement May Involve

To reinstate your driver’s license once your DMV suspension period has ended, you will have to:

  • Pay restoration fees such as child support
  • Apply for a new North Carolina driver’s license
  • Take a written test and/or driving test again in some instances

To reinstate your license after a suspension initiated by the court or another agency, you may have to meet their additional requirements before your driver’s license can be reinstated.
