License Suspension or Revocation
The consequences of license revocation can be serious. If you receive a New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) Scheduled Suspension Notice, whether you lose your driving privileges for a few weeks, several months, or a year or more, you may find it difficult or even impossible to get to work, attend classes, or take care of your family. You may lose your job or be unable to spend time with your children. You may consider committing the very serious offense of driving while suspended or revoked. For that reason, attorneys at our Monmouth County firm provide a thorough and aggressive defense to a client charged with speeding, possession of drugs, or any other traffic offense.
Traffic charges leading to suspension of driving privileges
There are many traffic offenses which carry mandatory periods of license suspension or revocation if a driver is found guilty. Our attorneys may be able to work with the judge to have multiple periods of suspension served concurrently, or to have charges reduced to a lesser offense that has a shorter period of suspension, or even none at all. For more information on charges that may result in license suspension or revocation, see the following:
- Driving without insurance
- Driving without a valid driver's license
- Possession of drugs in a motor vehicle
- Reckless driving, speeding, careless driving
- Failure to report an accident, leaving the scene of an accident
- Drunk driving - DUI and DWI
Under New Jersey law the court can suspend your license for issues which are not related to traffic violations. In the following cases, your license may be reinstated after you have dealt with the underlying reason for suspension.
- Failure to pay child support
- Failure to pay parking tickets
- Failure to pay DMV surcharges
- Failure to pay a license restoration fee
