How do Moving Violations Affect My License?

Moving Violations can have a number of different effects on your license, and can have impacts on your insurance as well. However, depending on the level of your license, the impact can change. 

There are 3 levels of licenses for non-commercial drivers in North Carolina. They are: Limited Learners Permits, Limited Provisional Licenses, and Full Provisional Licenses. 

While many people are familiar with the penalties associated with violations of having a Full Provisional License, many of those same penalties apply to lower levels of licenses too. For example, a speeding ticket can result in the addition of more time to a Learners Permit, meaning that the young driver has to hold the permit longer without any more violations before obtaining the Limited Provisional License. 

There are times, depending on the severity of the offense, that a Learners Permit or Limited Provisional License can be suspended. These suspensions range in the amount of time that they will last, depending on the individual circumstances. 

If you have further questions about the levels of driving licenses, or about how moving violations affect your level of license, call the Law Offices of Wiley Nickel, PLLC. The attorneys at Wiley Nickel can explain and work to help your situation.
