Don't mess around with this one.
A lot depends on how long ago the FTA Failure to Appear was entered. There may be options available, even at that speed.
If convicted as charged it would result in a suspension in NORTH CAROLINA, whom would, under the Interstate Compact, likely transmit notice to SCDMV.

Good inquiry.See question
I got a misdemeanor shoplifting charge and during first appearance was told I did not qualify for court appointed attorney for this case, so I have no idea what is to come out of this charge.
Sometimes people don't understand the long-term consequences for those types of cases.
"Shoplifting" is a misdemeanor; but, it is also the kind of case that if convicted can make it hard to find a job.
If at all possible you should try to retain legal counsel. There may be options available, depending on things like prior record, to avoid a conviction.
Thanks for your question and good luck to you!

I was pulled around 12 last night for my expired tags.. cool. Thats my fault. But then the officer tells me my license is revoked due to a probation violation.. but ive NEVER been on probation. No one told me of this. Ive never missed a courtdate...
Gracious. This one likely is going to require further inquiry.
We occasionally see cases of mistaken identity or where someone has used another person's name.
It is also possible the type of Probation was "unsupervised" and if conditions of the Court were not met, like payment of fines or completion of community service, it could be deemed a violation.
Either way, talk to a lawyer to clear up both the probation and NCDL issue.
Best of luck!
My friend, who was driving another car, and I were driving on a 70mph highway from charlotte to Winston Salem on the afternoon of Super Bowl. He was driving ahead of me. In order to catch him, I had to speed up. And both of us were pulled over. He...
That's a serious ticket.
Chapter 20-16 provides for revocation of license when a motorist:
(10a) Has been convicted of operating a motor vehicle at a speed in excess of 80 miles per hour on a public highway where the maximum speed is 70 miles per hour

"Retain a lawyer" likely will be the best advice you'll receive.

I'm 17 & I got caught shoplifting. However, I never left the establishment with the goods. Once the cops arrived, they didn't arrest me because I showed respect to them. I've also never committed a crime before . Will this go on my record ? What w...
What you're referring to is likely Unlawful Concealment.
It's considered a crime of theft or dishonesty to hide items with the intent to steal them.
The long-term consequences are not good. It can be hard to find a job.
Hire a lawyer. There may be options available.

Mike Tyson once famously said "everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face."
It's sort of that way with traffic tickets.
While it may look simple, they can be deceptively complex.

You are correct, dismissed charges cannot be used as part of calculation.
