Traffic Violations

When can my driver’s license be suspended or revoked?

Driving a car is considered a privilege– and the State of New Jersey will not hesitate to take it away, if a driver behaves irresponsibly on the road. A State may temporarily suspend your driving privileges for a number of reasons, including:

  • driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • refusing to take a blood-alcohol test
  • driving without liability insurance
  • speeding
  • reckless driving
  • leaving the scene of an injury accident
  • failing to pay a driving-related fine
  • failing to answer a traffic summons, or
  • failing to file an accident report.

In addition, New Jersey uses a “point” system to keep track of a driver’s moving violations: each moving violation is assigned a certain number of points. If a driver accumulates too many points within a given period of time, the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) will suspend his or her license.
