Thank you for your response, much appreciated.
However, I am still hanging in limbo on this situation. I have completed everything asked of me and yet NC is still asking for more. I paid the fees, I contacted the courts, they have nothing on record and sent me an official letter stating that either the record was destroyed or was purged from their system. I met with an assessor in my county, and underwent a drug and alcohol test. The assessor stated that she sees absolutely no problem whatsoever and doesn't understand why NC is going to these extremes esp. with having such a clean driving record and having underwent an assessment in the Marine Corp when this occurred. She filled out the paperwork that NC Assessor faxed to me to give her and sent it back to them.
I am now being told by the NC DMV that the original fee, back when they sent me the letter about this in June 1995, was $50. As of Sept. 2010 the fee went up to $100. I asked if somehow we can work this out to where I can get my license so I can get back to work, I explained that I am a truck driver and have not been able to work since Oct. 5, 2010. I explained to them I was out of state with the Marine Corp when they sent the one and only letter, I did not receive it. I was told No, they will not give me my license back until this is completely cleared up, and said they could not tell me how long this might take.
They are now saying that the $100 I sent them was for the courts, of which I was told by the courts there were no fees. NC DMV begs to differ and that I need to send another $100 to them.
My county assessor called them to see if she could expedite things for me and was told that NC assessor is requesting me to do 40 hours of alcohol tx. even though I underwent the assessment they requested which cost $95, and she recommended that there was no alcohol problem. UNREAL!!! So why did I have to go through this local assessor if the outcome wasn't going to matter ? I don't know what else to do....should I get an attorney at this point? I am about to lose my job over this, they don't know how much longer they can wait on me. Not to mention they can't believe any of this.
I have requested documents from them regarding all of this and was told that the one and only letter that was sent to me in June 1995 was to old to fax and that it would have to be emailed to the DMV from whomever has it, and then she can send it on to me. She said she didn't know how long that would take cause I'm not the only case they have.
I can't believe that something like this can just pull the rug out from under someone and destroy their lives.
