Driving While License Revoked (DWLR) in North Carolina

Criminal Defense Attorney in Hendersonville, Asheville, Brevard, Columbus, and other surrounding NC areas

Have you been charged with Driving While License Revoked (DWLR) in the Hendersonville or Asheville, N.C., surrounding areas? There are many legal and non-legal issues surrounding this type of charge including: 1) did the officer rightfully stop you?, 2) are you eligible to get your driver’s license?, 3) were you driving a “vehicle” which requires a license to drive?, 4) why was your license originally revoked?, etc…

If your NC driver’s license was originally revoked for the offense of driving while impaired (DWI or DUI), then you may face a more severe punishment. Also, it is important to note that, even though this offense appears to be a traffic violation, it is still considered a criminal offense that appears on your criminal record. In some situations, you could be facing a possibility of jail time for sentencing.

Another part to this DWLR charge focuses on your ability to get your license back if found guilty, or pleading guilty, to DWLR. It depends on how many past convictions you have had for DWLR. For first offenders, the license could be revoked for an additional one year, for second offender it is revoked for an additional two years, and for the third offense revoked indefinitely.

If your driver’s license has been revoked indefinitely, we can contact the NC Division of Motor Vehicles to see if you qualify for a hearing to reinstate your license.
