In most situations, drivers license endorsements are used for granting you additional driving privileges without having you to apply for a different type of drivers license. Most of the North Carolina driver's license endorsements apply to commercial drivers licenses and thus won't be useful to those who currently hold a regular class C license. However, there are exceptions to this trend, such as a motorcycle endorsement. A motorcycle endorsement can be added to any regular drivers license.
In certain cases, a restriction may be placed onto your North Carolina drivers license. Some of the North Carolina drivers license restrictions are health-related and permanent, while others can be removed from the license when you meet certain conditions. A good example of temporary restrictions are North Carolina provisional driver's license restrictions that are part of the state's graduated license system. Once the licensee graduates from the program, these restrictions are removed from the license. If you need help with a specific North Carolina driver's license restriction code, please contact the Department of Transportation.
Have you decided to apply for a North Carolina drivers license and don't know where to start? We have to admit that applying for a North Carolina driver license may be an overwhelming experience, especially for those who have never been licensed before. Drivers license applicants under the age of 18 years will need to meet all North Carolina graduated driver's license requirements prior to applying for an unrestricted driver's license. As part of the application procedure, you will be required to take a DOT permit test and a North Carolina drivers license test, so you better study before you visit the DOT and file your application.
