If you fail to appear for a required court hearing, an order for Arrest will be issued and, after 20 days, the DMV will be notified of your noncompliance. NC DMV assesses a $200.00 fee and will suspend your license. Since your court appearance was necessary and you failed to appear, you cannot take care of this ticket until the District Attorney agrees to reinstate the charges against you. To do this, you must appear in person in the Criminal Division of the Clerk's Office, located on the 1st floor, Room 110, of the Buncombe County Courthouse for more instructions.
If you live in another state, you should contact an attorney practicing in Buncombe County, North Carolina. Hiring an attorney to represent you may save you the time and expense of a personal appearance in court.
If your court appearance was not necessary and you failed to appear in court or pay your fine, contact the Criminal Division at (828) 259-3402 to find out how much you need to pay. You may be able to simply pay the amount through the mail by certified check or money order.
