Certified Criminal Trial Attorney Representing Clients Charged with Driving with a Suspended License and other Motor Vehicle Violations

In New Jersey, a driver’s license can be suspended or revoked for a number of reasons such as failure to pay DMV surcharges, failure to pay a license restoration fee, failure to pay fines or appear in court for a traffic violation, having more than 12 points on your driver’s license, or even failure to pay a parking ticket. More troublesome, the State of New Jersey does not grant hardship licenses.

Consequences of Driving While on the Suspended List and The Law

In New Jersey, Driving While Suspended or Revoked is governed by N.J.S.A. 39:3-40 and the penalties are extremely harsh. For a first offense, a motorist is subject to a punishment that includes both fines of $500 and a possible loss of driving privileges for a period of 6 months.  A second offender is subject to an increased punishment and must pay a fine of $750 and an additional license suspension for 6 months.  A third or a subsequent offender is subject to a severe punishment and must pay a fine of $1,000. The driver is also subject to a license suspension for as long as  6 six months and a mandatory 10 day jail term.
