License Revocation / Restoration

License Revocation / Restoration

There are many ways your license may become revoked. Whether you have been caught driving with a revoked license, or just found out your license may be revoked, contact us immediately to find out what we can do to restore your driving privilege and handle any charges you may have.

Upon being charged with an Implied Consent offense, or a violation involving impaired driving, your license is immediately revoked, usually for 30 days if it’s a first offense. At the end of 30 days, and not a day before, you can pay the “civil revocation fee,” currently $100.00, at the Clerk of Court in the county where you were charged. In Wake County, you can go to the Clerk’s office in Room 102. Once paid, the revocation is lifted and the Clerk will give you back your license. At that point, you have the same right to drive as before you were charged, assuming no other revocations are in place.

If you need to drive before the 30 days is up, it may be possible to obtain a Limited Driving Privilege after 10 days. The courts charge $100.00, in addition to the civil revocation fee, for this privilege, plus several other requirements including a substance abuse assessment. If you are interested, contact us immediately to discuss what steps need to be taken before the first 10 days are up. If you retain us to represent you on the underlying charge, we do not charge any fee to obtain this Privilege.
