Indirect Consequences Of A DWI In North Carolina

Sometimes known as DUI or drunk driving, driving while impaired (DWI) in the state of North Carolina carries with it serious, long-lasting consequences that many people do not understand when they are first charged.

Along with fines and potential jail time, those convicted of drunk driving are likely to encounter:

  • Suspension or revocation of a driver's license
  • Mandatory completion of expensive courses including the Alcohol and Drug Education Traffic School (ADETS)
  • Installation and maintenance of an ignition interlock device on all registered vehicles
  • Loss of employment prospects as a result of a DWI on a criminal record
