Need to be honest when applying to NYS DMV. NC driving privileges are suspended until you resolve your problem there.

For further information you should see an attorney and discuss the matter completely. If you are in the New York City area, then you can reach me during normal business hours at 718 329 9500 or


New York DMV may ask you to provide your driver's abstract from NC or may run the report themselves. In addition, even if you manage to get your license here in New York it is typically only a matter of time before the out of state suspension catches up with you. Contact a NC traffic attorney to help you clear up the matter or pay the fine so you don't have to worry about it.
