What is a Prayer For Judgment Continued (PJC)?

A Prayer for Judgment Continued is a disposition and not considered a conviction. North Carolina licensed drivers are allowed two PJCs to be used during a five-year period. However, two PJCs granted by the Court within three years will likely result in an insurance increase. A driver operating with a commercial driver’s license (CDL) is not eligible for a PJC.

 


What is the difference between Waivable and Non-Waivable Offenses?
If your traffic citation does not indicate a court cost and fine to be paid, then that ticket is considered a serious traffic offense(non-waivable) and could result in a suspension of driving privileges.  It also indicates a required court appearance. Even if your traffic ticket does indicate a cost and fine (waivable), it is still suggested that you call the office to discuss the best disposition of the ticket.
