The New Jersey Traffic Charges Attorney You Need

Getting your license suspended is more than an inconvenience, it can be life-altering! If you need your license for your job, losing it is devastating. If you’re at risk for losing your license, here’s some helpful information from the New Jersey traffic charges attorney you need.

The Points System

Like most other states, New Jersey’s Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) operates on a points system for traffic violations. Committing certain offenses adds points to your license. Get enough points and your license will be suspended.

  • Generally, more severe traffic violations come with a larger number of points.
  • Six or more points within a three-year period will result in a surcharge.
  • 12 or more points on your current driving record will result in license suspension.
  • Getting points on your license may increase your insurance.

Thankfully, you can earn point reductions for every year you avoid additional violations. Furthermore, there are things you can do in order to prevent license prevention, such as traffic school or competency exams.

Restoring Your License

The good news is that you can get your license restored after a certain amount of time. Consider this chart…

Violation Suspension
For the first violation within a year
Within 6 months of restoration 90 days
Within 7–9 months 60 days
Within 10–12 months 45 days
For second or subsequent violations
Within 6 months of restoration 180 days
Within 7–9 months 120 days
Within 10–12 months 90 days
