Why NJMVC Suspends Licenses

There are many ways to lose your driver's license in New Jersey. Some of the most common reasons for a driver's license suspension include:

  • Too many points — Like every state, New Jersey keeps track of your driving history by assigning points to various law-breaking behaviors. If you accumulate too many points on your record, you could be at risk of license suspension.
  • Too many tickets on a probationary license — New drivers are given probationary licenses with strict guidelines. Violating these guidelines can result in the loss of driving privileges.
  • Unpaid civil judgments — If you were involved in a civil lawsuit and a court-ordered judgment was issued, you could lose your driver's license for failure to pay, even if the lawsuit had nothing to do with driving.
  • Unpaid surcharges — Surcharges are fines imposed by the New Jersey Surcharge Violation System after a ticket or other moving violation. Failure to pay can result in a license suspension.
  • Fraud — If you are caught with a fake ID or used fraud to obtain a driver's license, the state will seek to suspend your driver's license.
  • Fatal accidents — If you were involved in a fatal car accident and were found at-fault for the accident, your driver's license can be suspended.
  • Medical reasons — If you have been diagnosed with a medical disorder that impairs your ability to drive safely, the state may seek to suspend your driving privileges.
