My husband tried to renew his TxDL and was denied due to charges in jacksonville, NC. DUI and driving while licnese suspended

Humble, TX |

Both from 1991.. While he was an active marine. He left shortly after that and has been inTX.. He has had a TxDL renewed many times.. First time we have heard of this. I called the court and they said he has to come to NC to clear this up.. Is this true.. Really 22 years later?? Any advice would be greatful.. Thanks in advance..

He could be qualified for an occupational license in Texas. The problem may be that North Carolina just went through some old files which is why the license issue just popped up. Most states will honor the license suspension from another state. Contact a North Carolina lawyer for their opinion.

I would hire a DUI attorney in North Carolina to straighten this out. It will all have to be resolved there. In the meantime, he may qualify for an occupational DL in Texas. Contact a local defense attorney on this issue.
