Qualifying for a New Jersey Driver’s License After a Suspension

There are restrictions on who is qualified to hold a valid drivers license in the state of New Jersey. When someone operates a motor vehicle without a license, he or she may be issued a summons for being an unlicensed driver pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:3-10. If the individual was previously cited for this violation, they will be charged with the more serious offense of driving while suspended under N.J.S.A. 39:3-40.

What should therefore be clear is that an individual should do everything in their power to avoid a conviction under N.J.S.A. 39:3-10 so that the possibility of the escalating penalties (e.g. jail) associated with a revoked license conviction are eliminated. This is where are lawyers can prove invaluable insofar as we are able to avoid unlicensed convictions in an overwhelming percentage of cases.

Unlicensed Driver Tickets Preventing a Driver’s License Application

Whenever a motor vehicle violation is issued to an individual who is unlicensed, the court and/or NJ Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) will impose a period to which the motorist cannot obtain a license. The period is customarily six (6) months in accordance with N.J.S.A. 39:3-10. This period is recorded as a “suspension” if the defendant has held a license in the past and/or was previously suspended. If the individual has never been licensed, however, the six month period is recorded as a six (6) month prohibition from applying for a license.

Indefinite Driver’s License Suspension Preventing a Driver’s License Application

This can arise out of any number of scenarios, for example, because of an out-of-state suspension, outstanding fines or assessments payable to court, or even insurance surcharges.
