Driving While License Revoked

Manteo and Columbia, North Carolina Driving While License Revoked Defense Attorney

Driving while your license is revoked (DWLR) or driving on a suspended driver’s license is a serious offense and can result in significant penalties including permanent loss of license, fines and even jail time. At Wheless & Wheless, PLLC, we have extensive experience in asserting the rights of our clients facing DWLR charges.

Driving While License Revoked (DWLR) is a more serious offense than a DUI and can carry serious penalties including fines or jail time. Our lawyers will effectively assert your rights and defend you against DWLR charges. Contact us for an immediate consultation or case evaluation.

Even for a first time offense, Driving While License Revoked carries a longer sentence than a DWI. A first-time charge of DWLR is a class one misdemeanor resulting in a one-year suspension of your driver’s license and possible jail-time. If you are caught and stopped again for driving with a suspended license, they will add-on another year of suspension.

For many people living with a suspended license, they lose the ability to work or care for their family. A DWLR offense only makes it harder to secure driving privileges again.

If you have a suspended or revoked license, do not take the risk of a longer suspension while driving without a license. If you have already been arrested or charged with Driving While License Revoked (DWLR) then contact us as soon as possible to protect your rights.

Complete dismissal of your charges
While this is a rare remedy, our attorneys will pursue any available options to see the complete dismissal of your charges. This may be possible if you did not receive any lawful or adequate notice by the DMV of your suspension or revocation. Our attorneys will research the facts of your case to determine whether the DMV failed to give you notice or did not send the information to the right address.

If you plead not-guilty to the charges, we may be able to negotiate the offense to no operator license, operating without license in possession, or we may seek to reduce points on your license. We are skilled negotiators, have close relationships with our local courts and can effectively navigate your defense.

Our attorneys provide honest and reliable feedback at every stage of your case. You can always trust that we will give you realistic expectations. We pride ourselves on client-communication and preserve our reputation of honest and fair dealings with the court to achieve optimal client results.
