  1. Generally in NC, when you refuse to submit to breath chemical analysis, the penalty is a 12-month driver's license suspension. If you have already been a year without your license you should be able to apply for reinstatement (if you otherwise qualify). Whether you refused or not doesn't seem like it's still an issue. Good luck.


  2. I don't practice in NC. In my state you can continue the hearing and keep a temporary license for a long time, depending on your circumstances.
