I had mine taken off last month after a year with it in my truck. Aldo is right, you need to go to the DMV and get your license back first and it will say on the back what day you will be allowed to have it removed. I suggest calling the DMV in Raleigh and asking to speak with a hearing officer. They are the ones that can give you the correct info. They will shoot strait with you, don’t ask a regular DMV worker, they really don’t know.
