How to restore your driving privileges

Have you received a letter in the mail from the State of New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission saying that your driver's license has been suspended? If so, you are not alone. You are also not alone if you are surprised by this fact. It might feel hard to believe but it is true that you can be notified of something like this that has a pretty major impact on your daily life by a simple letter in the mail. What can you do when this happens?

Certainly it will be important for you to understand the reason for your license suspension. Next you will need to ascertain if there is a timeframe associated with your suspension. Some suspensions may be ordered for specific lengths of time such as 45 days, 60 days or 90 days. Some may even last as long as 180 days depending upon the reason. Different offenses may add different numbers of points on your license and a suspension may be ordered when you have 12 or more points on your license.

As soon as you are eligible to restore your license, you may pay a suspension fee and from there follow the standard process for renewing your driver's license. The one exception is that you will not be able to restore your license online or by mail but will need to go into a MVC office.

If you would like to learn more about different traffic violations and the consequences of these minor offenses, including license suspensions, please feel free to visit the license restoration page of our New Jersey misdemeanor and traffic violations website.
