Settlement Announced in Lawsuit on Revocation of Licenses for Not Paying Traffic Court Debts

Over the next 60 days, the NC DMV will contact by mail and email more than 185,000 drivers whose licenses it revoked for their failure to pay fines, penalties, and court costs. Those drivers will be informed in a special notice about their ability under North Carolina General Statute § 20-24.1 to have the NCDMV lift those revocations if the sentencing court finds their failure to pay was not willful and was instead because of their inability to afford the amount due.
