WINSTON-SALEM—Forsyth County residents with a suspended or revoked driver's license have until May 21 to register for a free license-restoration program.

To register:

  • Call Legal Aid of North Carolina's toll-free helpline at 1-866-219-5262
  • As soon as you hear the automated greeting, dial 2659
  • The helpline is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • May 21 is the last day to register. Space is limited, so act fast!

Legal Aid staff will screen callers to ensure they are eligible for a license restoration. Eligible callers will be asked to attend a future event—date to be determined—where they will complete the restoration process.

The event is sponsored by Drive Forward NC, a partnership of Kilpatrick Townsend, Truist Bank and Legal Aid of North Carolina.
