What To Do After A DWI Charge In North Carolina

A drunk driving charge is a very serious offense. In fact, North Carolina is home to some of the strictest DWI laws in the country. While some states have separate laws for DUI and drug-related driving offenses, North Carolina encompasses all violations under a single offense — driving while impaired (DWI).

If you were arrested on DWI charges, it is imperative that you act quickly and obtain immediate legal support. At Robinson and Lauterbach, Attorneys At Law, PLLC, we are dedicated to defending the rights of individuals in Gaston County facing criminal charges, including DWI and traffic violations.

Driver's License Suspensions In North Carolina

If the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) decides to suspend or revoke your driver's license, you will receive a written notice in the mail. The length of your license suspension will vary based on the specific circumstances of your case.

Can I Obtain A Copy Of My Driving Record?

Yes, any North Carolina driver can request a copy of their driving record through the DMV. Your official driving record contains information on the status and expiration date of your driver's license. It will also include any previous traffic violations, accidents and convictions.

The request can be made online through the DMV's website, via mail or in person.
