Prayer for Judgment NC

When does the 3 year period start for a Prayer for Judgment?  For insurance purposes, the insurance industry looks at the date of occurrence.  So if you received a Prayer for Judgment on 2/24/14 for a ticket you received on 12/1/13, the insurance company looks at the 12/1/13 date.  You can continue the case for years and it will not make a difference.  However, the DMV looks at the entry of judgment date.  For DMV purposes, continuing a case may be advantages.
