In-State License Suspension for Out-of-State Speeding Ticket
North Carolina can suspend your driving privileges if you are found guilty of various high speed traffic tickets in other states. If you receive a speeding ticket in another state, and simply “pay-off” the ticket, in most situations you are accepting responsibility for the speed. It is the same as pleading “guilty” or “responsible.” It is also very common for most states to communicate that conviction back to the North Carolina DMV. Next thing you know, you receive a letter from the DMV advising you that your license is about to be suspended. What do you do next? First, do not delay in contacting knowledgeable help who can guide you through the issue. Time is of the essence. If you delay, you may waive various rights to possible hearings.
