TRAFFIC POINT SYSTEM
NEW JERSEY TRAFFIC ATTORNEY
Under New Jersey law, if convicted of a moving violations, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) will penalize you by adding points to your driving record. You will only get points on your record for moving violations. Points are not assessed for parking and other violations. Below is a table showing the point totals associated with different traffic violations as well as a table showing how to deduct points from your driver's license.
HOW DO POINTS IMPACT YOUR LICENSE?
If you get six or more points within three years on your current driving record, you will be assessed a surcharge.
If you get 12 or more points on your current driving record, your license will be suspended. You will receive a notice of scheduled suspension by mail.
Getting points on your license may also increase your insurance rates.
HOW CAN I GET RID OF POINTS ON MY RECORD?
Although the MVC keeps a permanent record of your points, it is possible to earn point deductions by remaining violation and suspension-free for one year or by taking qualified driving courses approved by MVC.
