In North Carolina, your driver’s license can be suspended for a number of reasons. The suspension period will vary based on the reason for the suspension. Commonly, people have their licenses suspended for failing to pay fines, speeding and reckless driving convictions, and DWI / DUI. You may also have your license suspended for failing to pay child support.
If your license is suspended, you will receive notification from the NC DMV. At that time, you may be able to request an administrative hearing to attempt to reinstate your license. Administrative hearings are not guaranteed and are granted depending on the reason for the suspension.
Upon requesting a hearing, you will retain your driver’s license and privilege to drive until you have the hearing. If you wish to request a hearing, or if you would like to find out if you are eligible to have a hearing, you can contact the NC DMV’s hearing office by phone or mail.

Additionally, it’s important to note that if you lose your NC DMV hearing, you are able to appeal the decision of the first hearing to the North Carolina Superior Court if the appeal is made within thirty days.

I lost my license because I was in a accident in a rental car there saying i didn't have insurance. But I had insurance on my personal truck and motorcycle if I'm not mistaken they will pay for it when I left the rental company I paid the deductible and the person I was dealing with said that's all they needed

My GA license was cancelled 3/7/2017 due to a block from a 2010 Dui charge that I completed everything and went to court! I went to get my GA license renewed on 2/14/2017 & that s when I found out about the block! I immediately called NC DMV and was told I had to request a hearing which I did that day 2/14/2017 I was told that I would hear from hearing officer Drake about a hearing and I never did! I started calling every 2 days after a month went by and I was told that nothing had been put in the system and to keep calling back! So today 3/30/2017 I called and was told that my hearing was scheduled for 3/17/2017 And I was like no that is the last day I called to check on my hearing status because I had nt got anything in the mail & O I was told that because I had a speeding ticket in Alabama when I was moving my daughter to college that I was denied a hearing and would have to wait til 2019 before I could get a hearing! I just feel something isn't right because I did nt get the ticket after my GA license was cancelled! I really need good legal help

I've been denied my license after 2 separate hearings (2017 and 2018) and another hearing has been scheduled for January 26th 2019. I'm unable to secure employment without a Driver's license and I'm terrified that IlI' be denied a 3rd time. I'm seeking guidance on requesting a sooner hearing and a ruling that reinstates my license

I just had my dui hearing and lost. I did everything right with 4 years of proven recovery. Suspended 28 years classes paid $1700. But still denied and waited 5 days for the answer that I was denied. I want to appeal decision. The hearing officer has to much power it should not be left up to one person to decide. This officer had a bad phone call before hearing and rook it our on me. He even accused my friend that he smell alcohol on him and threw out his testimony said he was impaired but let my friend leave building. My friend was not impaired at all and is upset of accusation and I am devastated I was railroaded. It's nothing but away for ncdmv to collect cash and do nothing for it but deny everyone. 28 years suspended sober 4 years in 12 step program there no reason to deny me I am so upset I want justice. The laws need to be challenged concerning giving one person so much power of someone's future. What if officer has bad day takes out on person hearing and deny when person has earn the right to drive again. Especially for recovery of helping addicts alcoholics. Dmv hearing is a scam they lie and will not grant reinstatements to people that deserve it. Again one big money racket and I will fight them no matter what it takes tge law must be challenged for people to have a chance to win a dmv administrative hearing. Please call me @ 843-910-7107
