The purpose of NC Fair Chance is two-fold:
- Help with driver’s license restoration. We believe that a person should not lose their driver’s license forever simply because they cannot afford to pay court costs and fines. We work to eliminate traffic court debt that is causing a long-term license suspension in order to get North Carolinians safely back on the road and back to work.
- Help with record clearing. 1 in 5 people in North Carolina have a criminal record. Even charges that are dismissed or not guilty can lead to discrimination and lost wages. NC Fair Chance alerts North Carolinians to dismissed and not guilty charges that are eligible to be expunged from their records and offers guidance about the expungement process.
