New Jersey Persistent Violator Hearing Lawyers
The New Jersey Administrative Code (“N.J.A.C.”) section 13:19-10.2 gives authority to the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission to suspend a driver’s license for having accumulated too many points within a certain period of time. This is what is known as a “Persistent Violator” suspension, and the proposed suspension could range anywhere from 30 days to three years, depending on the driver’s history and number of previous suspensions.
What Triggers a Persistent Violator Suspension?
An accumulation of 12 or more points on a driver’s license will give rise to the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission issuing a Scheduled Suspension Notice for an administrative license suspension. Therefore, pleading guilty to too many point-carrying moving violations can trigger a persistent violator suspension.
Additionally, once a driver is restored from a suspension, they are put on a probationary license for a period of one year. At this time, any moving violation, including those that do not carry points, can trigger a suspension for being a “persistent violator”.
If you’re faced with one of these proposed suspensions, call us at 1 (877) 450-8301. We can help request a hearing and eliminate or reduce the suspension period dramatically.
