This offense is codified in N.C.G.S. § 20-7. You are subject to getting a ticket for no operator’s license if you do not have your license in possession when driving, your license is expired or you never had a license to drive in North Carolina.
A conviction or plea to a NOL is a Class 3 misdemeanor that carries 3 license points and 1 insurance point. We can oftentimes get these charges dismissed if the license is obtained prior to court. The main danger with this type of violation is oftentimes a driver is revoked when stopped but is only given a ticket for no operator’s license. In this case pleading to the charge will result in an extended revocation period.
