Failure to Appear

One of the most common things we handle is a revoked driver’s license for failure to appear in court on a traffic citation.

If you receive a North Carolina traffic citation, then you must take action to handle it - you cannot simply ignore it. If your citation carries a mandatory court appearance, then you must either appear in court yourself or hire an attorney to do so for you.

Failure to appear in court will result in your North Carolina driving privilege being suspended until the case is resolved. If you have a license from another state, North Carolina will frequently report this failure to appear to your home state. In that case, your license may also be suspended until the case is resolved. If your charges are serious enough, then an order for your arrest can also be issued.

If you have received notice that your license is going to be suspended – or has been suspended – for a failure to appear on a traffic charge in Johnston County – call or email us today. We can take immediate action to try to resolve your case, clear the failure to appear, and help you get your driving privileges back.
