Driving While Your License Is Revoked in North Carolina
Many people are unaware of the potentially severe consequences of driving with a revoked or suspended license. In North Carolina, driving while your license is revoked or suspended can lead to jail time. The first time you are convicted, consequences could mean a one-year revocation of your driver’s license. A second conviction could mean a two-year revocation, and a third conviction could mean the permanent revocation of your license.
Revocation of a driver’s license can have a serious impact on your life. For many people, it means not being able to drive to and from a job they depend on. It can also make simple errands or even getting yourself or your child to school seem impossible. Due to these serious consequences, working with a defense lawyer is critical to your success when you have been accused of driving with a revoked license. At Jetton & Meredith, our traffic ticket attorneys in Charlotte can fight to keep you on the road.* If you are facing a driving while license revoked charge, it is important to understand the law and how it may apply to you.
About DMV Hearings
If your license has been suspended or revoked due to a traffic violation or DWI, you may be facing the prospect of never driving again. Your first, and possibly only, chance of restoring your driving privileges will come at a hearing before the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Our lawyers have extensive experience representing clients at DMV hearings throughout North Carolina. We will provide you with the personalized representation you deserve and fight to restore your driving privileges as soon as possible.*
We have many years of combined experience representing motorists who have lost their licenses as a result of moving violations such as DUI/DWI, refusing a chemical test, or driving with a suspended license.
We also challenge suspensions and revocations that have occurred due to the accumulation of 12 or more points, such as:
- Passing a stopped school bus (five points)
- Reckless driving, hit-and-run, following too closely, driving on the wrong side of the road, or illegal passing (four points)
- Running a stop sign or red light, failing to yield right of way, driving through a safety zone, speeding in excess of 55 miles per hour, or speeding in a school zone (three points)
- Other moving violations or failure to retain a child in a restraint or seat belt (two points)
- Littering out of a car (one point)
At your DMV hearing, we will be your advocate, pressing for the reinstatement of your full driving privileges. In some cases, we are able to obtain limited driving privileges through a “motion for appropriate relief,” a process where a previous case is reopened in order to renegotiate an outcome that may result in reinstatement.*
Can You Keep Your License Prior to the Hearing?
The DMV has the authority to allow you to maintain your license while you await your hearing, but you must first ask for a hearing. As soon as you receive a letter from the DMV, we can begin ensuring that the proper steps are being taken to position you for a successful outcome.*

Prompt, thorough, understanding and knowledgeable, are only a few of the adjectives that describe Jetton & Meredith. Fabulous lawyers, highly recommend for any family law cases!!- Former Client
Eric Meredith represented me during what turned out to be a lengthy divorce settlement. During the first meeting, he fully explained the process ahead and answered all my questions and concerns. I still remember the feeling of relief after that meeting knowing I had a true professional in my corner. Eric, along with his Paralegal Julie, kept me updated along the way and were quick to respond with any additional issues. Not only did he call with any updates to the case, he also would ask how I was doing. I cannot recommend Eric at Jetton & Meredith enough.- Tim
I highly recommend Mark. I hired him to handle a simple assault charge that was filed against me. Mark handled it professionally and expeditiously. He explained each step in the process, and everything happened just as he described. He is exactly the type of lawyer you want representing you.- J&M Client
Great service and very personal. Jetton & Meredith are very hardworking attorneys. I will recommend Jetton & Meredith to anyone in need.- Former Client
I cannot stress enough how great the customer service was with Jetton & Meredith, with my case being a little more complicated I had the opportunity to work with both Mr. Jetton and Mr. Meredith. I can say they know their stuff, Mr. Jetton was able to get my case dismissed the first time we went to court, no questions asked. Working with Mr. Meredith was a longer process but he walked me through the steps and gave me realistic expectations of an outcome that he was able to provide just as he stated he would do. I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision to hire Jetton & Meredith as my attorneys, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of an attorney!- Former Client
This law office far exceeded my expectations. All options and possible outcomes were set before me from the start and everything was handled in a professional and timely manner. Not only will I use this law firm again, but I would also and have already recommended them to the people I care most for. Thank you for all you’ve done.- Former Client
