Common reasons why a person`s driver`s licence may be suspended include too many driver`s licence points (12 DMV points within 3 years or 8 points within 3 years of a previous reinstatement), failure to appear in court (FTA), or conviction for certain crimes, such as: Speeding more than 15 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone or speeding more than 80 miles per hour. The duration of withdrawals issued by DMV may also vary. This type of DWLR was recently decriminalized and is now classified as a Class 3 offense in North Carolina.
