Under North Carolina law, any person whose driver’s license has been revoked and who knows that he is driving with a revoked license is guilty of the offense of Driving While License Revoked, a Class 1 misdemeanor.
Driving While License Revoked is a serious offense that may result in serious consequences. The punishment for this offense can be as severe as 120 days in jail, depending on the convicted person’s prior driving record. Also, a convicted person’s license will be revoked for an additional year with no limited driving privileges. This offense also assigns eight insurance points for anyone who is convicted.
An attorney familiar with the driving laws and penalties can review your case and help decide what is best for you. He or she can determine if you would be better served by a guilty plea to a less serious offense or whether you should go to court and try your case. Additionally, if you and your attorney decide that trial would be best, an experienced attorney can help prepare you for court.
