New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Point System

Violating New Jersey driving and traffic laws can result in fines, the suspension of your driving privileges, and even imprisonment. The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) uses a point system to track violations and their corresponding penalties. Points are added to your driving record if you receive a traffic ticket for moving violations.

MOVING VIOLATIONS AND POINTS

Different violations are assigned different point values, which are added to your driving record. For instance, moving violations like careless driving, failure to observe traffic signals, moving against traffic and failure to yield at an intersection each carry two points. Five-point offenses include tailgating, reckless driving and exceeding the maximum speed limit by 30 mph or more. The number of points assessed for different speeding violations are as follows:

Exceeding the maximum speed limit by 1-14 mph:2 points

Exceeding the maximum speed limit by 15-29 mph:4 points

Exceeding the maximum speed limit by 30 mph or more: 5 points

View the complete Point Schedule to learn about the number of points associated with each type of moving violation.

PENALTIES

You will be subject to specific penalties if you accumulate a certain number of points on your driving license:

  1. You will be assessed a surcharge if you get six or more points on your current driving record within any three years. These annual surcharges must be paid in addition to any other penalties or court fines. You must pay a $150 annual surcharge, plus $25 for each additional point you have accumulated beyond the initial six points. More about Surcharges.
  2. You will have your license suspended if you accumulate 12 points or more on your current driving record. A notice of scheduled suspension will be mailed to you. You may be imprisoned for driving with a suspended license.
  3. Accumulating points on your driving license is also likely to increase your auto insurance rates. See our auto insurance section for more information about obtaining quality car insurance at competitive rates.

HOW TO CLEAR YOUR DRIVING RECORD

The New Jersey MVC maintains a record of all the points added to your driving license. However, there are a number of ways in which you can remove points from your current driving record.
  1. If you remain violation or suspension-free for one year, you can get three points deducted from your current driving record.
  2. Taking a Defensive Driving Course enables you to deduct two points from your current driving record, and may also qualify you for a reduction in your car insurance rates.
  3. A Driver Improvement or Probationary Driver Program can enable you to deduct three points from your current driving record.

HOW TO DISPUTE A MOVING VIOLATION CHARGE

If you believe you have been incorrectly charged with committing a moving violation, you may be able to fight the charge in court. See Traffic Tickets and Traffic Ticket Attorneys for more information.

Reviews of New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Point System

If i go a year with out any moving violations or anything of that sort would there be any further action the would need to be taken by me in order to remove the three points from my license or would they come off automatically?

New Jersy cops are the most ill trained and they apply targeted application of traffic laws in a dishonest way. Example if three cars are moving simultaneously at the speed of 80 in the flow of traffic and two cars have NJ number plates while one has a new york plate-guess which one would they pull over -The new york one. The NJ plates they would let go because they know that out of state driver would not contest. So they will have accesses with them. May be thats how NJ police department trains them. They are the least courteos to the drivers and least helpfull. Thats why there have been so many targetted race allegation against them. NJ police need to seriously address this issue.Other state drivers know that NJ police cops would do such abuses as they ticket qoutas and thats how they balance their municipality's budgets. In this tough time such accesses are so shameful and painful but then thats not what they are trained for. Respect and coutesy that's not what they are trained for. Would someone please address this issue at the top. I guess not. Maybe they should take training help from NY,CTor PA.

I would like to know how many points i have accumulated on my drivers license. Also i would like to know how long my license is going to be suspended for?

How to check to see how many points if any you have against your dl.

I would like to know how many points I have on my licenses
