Temporary License for DWI Charges

If an individual is found guilty of a DWI, DUI or a refusal offense, he or she is required to surrender a New Jersey driver’s license. If the individual is licensed in another state, the court has no authority to confiscate that individual’s drivers license. In either case, the suspended driver is no longer authorized to drive in New Jersey insofar as his or her license is now suspended.

The law of New Jersey recognizes the hardship that can be placed on an individual in getting home from court without a valid license to operate a motor vehicle in New Jersey. The law therefore allows for the issuance of a temporary license which is typically granted on application by defense counsel. The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall insures that clients obtain temporary licenses in the unfortunate circumstance that their license is suspended in court.
