If you leave the scene of an accident at which there has been a personal injury, you’ll be assessed eight points.
If you receive six or more points within three years, you will be assessed a surcharge.
If you receive 12 or more points, your license will be suspended.
You can earn point deductions by avoiding violations in the future and/or by taking a remedial driver’s education course approved by the MVC.
Surcharges are fines assessed by the New Jersey Surcharge Violation System (NJSVS) based on the number of points you accumulate. These surcharges are in addition to any fines you may be required to pay.
If you have six or more points within a three year period from your last violation, you’ll be required to pay a surcharge of $150, plus $25 for each additional point over six.
You can also be assessed surcharges for:
Being an unlicensed driver or driving on an expired license
Driving with a suspended license
Operating an uninsured vehicle
Driving while intoxicated
Refusing to take a breath test
Beating Driving Infractions Charges in Court
You don’t have to passively accept a traffic ticket. You can request a hearing and try to beat the ticket, or at least have the charges reduced.
At the hearing, you or your lawyer can try to have your charges dismissed or reduced to a lesser offense.
Our firm can advise you on your rights and help you with the hearing and appeal process.
