N.J.S.A. 39:3-10, Unlicensed Driver Ticket Mandatory Six Month Suspension Downgraded

Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:3-10:

No person shall drive a motor vehicle on a public highway in this State unless the person is under supervision while participating in a behind-the-wheel driving course pursuant to section 6 of P.L.1977, c. 25 (C.39:3-13.2a) or is in possession of a validated permit, or a probationary or basic driver’s license issued to that person in accordance with this article.

Should you not currently possess, not have ever previously possessed a valid license in this State or any other State of this country, the court shall impose a mandatory six (6) suspension of your driving privileges. The concern here is that should you subsequently be caught Driving While Suspended, under N.J.S.A. 39:3-40, you will be facing mandatory jail time in certain instances. Therefore, it is imperative that an attorney work towards keeping your driving privileges intact.

Recently, our office assisted an individual charged with being an Unlicensed Driver, under N.J.S.A. 39:3-10(b), in a Monmouth County shore town.  My client had never owned or obtained a driver’s license here in the United States and was technically not a legal resident at the time. Therefore, he lacked both a license to drive, as well as documentation to remain here in the United States. Based on certain shortcomings in the State’s evidence, I was able to obtain a downgrade in the charges and amend the client’s ticket to a far less sever offense (specifically, a Touring violation) and have the remainder of the charges dismissed. This resulted in a $156 fine ONLY. A far less severe outcome then what my client was initially facing.
