Driving Without a Valid License

Northfield NJ Driving Without a License Lawyer

In New Jersey, driving without a valid license can result in embarrassing and inconvenient consequences, including fines of up to $500 and even jail time of up to 60 days. For offenders who have never been licensed, there is a mandatory minimum fine of $200 and a 6-month hold will be placed on the offender’s ability to obtain a driver’s license once they are otherwise eligible under state law. With these potentially serious penalties at play, you will need an experienced defense attorney on your side to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

The odds of being pulled over on the roads and highways of New Jersey are relatively high, even if you are doing everything right as the driver. Law enforcement officers are able to scan the license plate on your vehicle as you drive along the highway, and immediately determine whether the vehicle is covered by a sufficient insurance policy, up to date on state inspections, and registered properly under the displayed license plate. Additionally, police often stop drivers for issues such as broken tail lights, balding tires, or other unsafe vehicle conditions, which you may not even be aware of when getting behind the wheel. Furthermore, even if you are driving safely and taking the utmost precautions, other drivers around you on the road may not be driving safely, and your vehicle could end up involved in an accident. Therefore, if you drive without a license in New Jersey, there is a good chance that you will eventually come to the attention of authorities.
