Standard Hours on a Limited Driving Privilege are ordinarily deemed Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Non-standard hours would be hours outside of "standard hours," and therefore may include weekends, nights, a times after 8:00 p.m. and/or before 6:00 a.m.

Due to the complexities associated with Limited Driving Privileges in North Carolina, please consult with legal counsel to determine the terms and conditions, if any, for eligibility to drive in NC after a conviction for impaired driving, or after having been accused of DWI, and/or pursuant to installation of a "blow and go" as may be mandated by NCDMV.
