License Suspension

Dangerous, negligent or careless driving behavior can result in both serious legal consequences and the temporary or permanent loss of driving privileges.

Suspension

If a driver's license is suspended, their driving privilege is temporarily withdrawn for a specific period and may be reinstated once the terms of the suspension are fulfilled.

Once the terms of the suspension have been fulfilled, a driver can apply for a license at an NCDMV driver license office.  In addition to the requirements for getting a driver license, some suspensions require proof of insurance at the time of reinstatement.

Revocation

If a driver's license is revoked, their driving privilege is terminated and can only be reinstated if they meet eligibility requirements and any conditions or terms set forth in a hearing by the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles.

A driver who has had their license revoked can apply for a license at an NCDMV driver license office.  In addition to the requirements for getting a driver license, some revocations require proof of insurance at the time of reinstatement.
