Did you get a DWI while driving in North Carolina? Here is an overview of the procedures for having your driving privileges reinstated. The most important thing to remember is that timing is everything. The longer you delay the steps for reinstatement, the more costly it becomes to get your license and driving record in good standing.
As North Carolina state-approved DWI service providers, we also help people who live out of state but got a DWI while in North Carolina. As you will see in the infographic, the steps for handling an out-of-state DWI are similar, but must be handled by a provider who has experience in this area, since each state is different.
Need to clear your DWI with the North Carolina DMV? Here is how the process works:
Complete a DWI Assessment
All drivers charged or convicted of a DWI in North Carolina must complete a DWI Assessment at an approved DWI facility. The purpose of the DWI assessment is to determine the level of classes you will need to take to satisfy North Carolina’s requirements.
DWI facility reports completion of DWI assessment
Once the assessment is completed, the approved DWI facility will notify the State DWI office via a Form e-508.
Complete your DWI classes or treatment
Drivers convicted of a DWI in North Carolina must complete DWI classes or treatment ranging from ADETS (16 hours) to long term (40+ hours).
DWI facility reports completion of DWI classes or treatment
When a driver completes DWI classes or treatment, the approved DWI facility will notify the State DWI office via a Form e-508.
The State DWI office reviews Form e-508 and submits to DMV for approval. DMV approval may take up to 7 days.
