Consequences of Multiple DUI /DWI Convictions in North Carolina

Driving while intoxicated (DWI or DUI) is an offense for which the consequences become increasingly severe if you have prior convictions. For example:

  • Second offense DUI/DWI: If you have a prior DUI/DWI conviction within three years of your current offense, you face mandatory driver’s license revocation for four years.
  • Third offense DUI/DWI: If you have two prior DUI/DWI convictions and at least one of these occurred within the past five years, you face permanent driver’s license revocation.
  • Fourth offense DUI/DWI: If you have three prior DUI/DWI convictions and at least one of these occurred within the past seven years, you could face felony charges and you could permanently lose your North Carolina driving privileges.

If you are convicted of drunk driving while your driver’s license is revoked for an earlier DWI conviction, the court may seize your vehicle and sell it.

Protecting your future: Because North Carolina DWI laws are so tough on repeat offenders, it is important to do everything you can to avoid a first conviction. Our lawyers have the experience and the trial skills to help protect your driving record.
