Driving without a license in Statesville, NC is an offense that often carries serious consequences.
In North Carolina, any driver who operates a vehicle is required to possess a valid driver’s license. Drivers who are pulled over and it is discovered that they are driving without a license face serious consequences, depending on the circumstances of the situation.
Whether you were fined for driving without a license because you simply left it at home or because you were driving on a suspended license following a DWI conviction, I, W. Sloan Goforth, Attorney at Law, am here to help you navigate the legal process. I realize that the penalties associated with driving without a license can be severe, and I am here to help you mitigate the effects of these consequences.
Please keep in mind that the charges for driving without a license in Statesville, North Carolina fall into one of two categories: correctable offenses and willful violations. When you forget to carry your driver’s license with you when you drive, you must later show proof that you hold a valid license to have the citation dismissed. Failure to provide adequate evidence usually leads to fines and other penalties.
Comparatively, willful violations, such as driving on a license that is revoked or suspended, are much more serious. When you commit a willful violation, you may be fined and in some cases, charged with a misdemeanor offense.
