Hi, I'm Bill Powers and I'm with Powers/McCartan. I'm here to talk to you about suspension of your license in North Carolina, and that's found in Chapter 20, Section 16 of the North Carolina General Statutes. Though it's interesting that the Division has the authority to suspend any license with or without a preliminary hearing by showing of certain records that the licensee has had a series of different offenses. Now, in North Carolina, there are about 11 or 12 different ways that your license can be suspended, and most notably it has to do with a points accumulation. Now the points are also listed in Chapter 20, and if you accumulate 12 or more points in a 3-year period, or 8 or more points in a 3-year period immediately following a reinstatement of the license, you can end up with another license conviction for an additional period of time. If you have questions about what can cause your license to be suspended in North Carolina, please give us a ring at Powers/McCartan, we are here to help.
