First of all, your license is not just suspended in Hertford County - your NC driver's license is suspended indefinitely in EVERY COUNTY until you comply with this citation. One thing they didn't tell you is that you must pay a $200 failure to appear fee. This can sometimes be waived by an attorney. Once you comply with the citaiton by pleading the case down and paying your court costs, fine and $200 FTA fee, you must reinstate your driver's license with NC DMV. This fee ranges between $50 and $100, depending on whether you surrendered your license when they asked you do. Once you pay that reinstatement fee, your license will be active and it shouldn't cause you any more problems. Just don't miss court again.
My answering this question and your reading this answer does not create an attorney-client relationship. I only form attorney-client relationships upon a face-to-face meeting with prospective clients.
Your license is suspended indefinitely until the ticket is reopened and then disposed of. That is a statewide suspension. In addition to the fines and court costs, there is also a $200.00 Failure to Appear fee that is assessed by the Clerk of Court. An attorney may be able to help you obtain a better reduction than 9 over and may be able to get the extra $200.00 fee waived. After you resolve the ticket, you will be required to pay a reinstatement fee to DMV to have your license activated.
