License Suspension 
for DWI in North Carolina

A Raleigh DWI Attorney Who Will Fight for You

One of the most inconvenient and life-altering penalties associated with DWI is a license suspension. In fact, it is possible for you to lose your license even before your case heads to court in North Carolina.

Suspension for Refusal

If you refused to take the official state breath test after your arrest, the DMV will suspend your license for one year, regardless of how many (if any) priors are on your record. It may be possible to qualify for a limited driving permit after serving six months of this suspension.

Administrative Penalties

If you are convicted of DWI, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will impose a separate license suspension on top of any penalties assessed by the court in your case. The length of this suspension will depend on how many priors may be on your record and sentencing level of the DWI.

  • First DWI: one year
  • Second DWI (within three years of the first DWI conviction(: four years
  • Third DWI (with prior conviction within five years immediately preceding the current offense): permanent
  • Impaired driving sentenced at Aggravated Level 1: Permanent
