Driver License Offenses in NC

Traffic Attorney

Driving While License Revoked, Driving without an Operator’s License, Driving with an Expired License are NOT the same thing!

People call me looking for help with tickets all the time, and one of the things we run into is the use of words that don’t mean what people think they mean. Here’s a typical example…

“I hope you can help me. I got a ticket for driving with no license. What can you do to help?”

Well, that depends on what you mean. “Driving with no license” might mean you simply didn’t have your wallet with you. Not a big deal, easy fix, low charge. It might mean your license was expired, or maybe you simply haven’t gotten a license yet. Once again, not a huge problem, relatively easy to fix but with some hoops you’ll need to jump through, and not a big charge for me. Or it might mean your license is revoked. That IS a big deal, and depending on why it’s revoked, could end up being a lot of legwork for you, and a big charge from me to fix the mess.

Not having a license at all is different from having a license but not having it with you, which is different from having an expired license, which is totally different from having a revoked license. These. Are. Not. The. Same. Thing.

Please, if you have a license problem, talk to an attorney, and get good advice ASAP to avoid making your problems even worse.
