If you need to schedule an assessment for a DWI, a Driving While License Revoked offense, or if you have a citation for operating a motor vehicle under age 21 while having alcohol in your blood, you are required to have a DWI Assessment. You will need a copy of your citation, the B.A.C. reading, and a recent N.C. Driving Record ( a non certified online pdf or your driving record will suffice) prior to your appointment.
