You can lose your New Jersey driving privileges in either of two ways. The first way is for a judge to order that your driver's license be suspended. The second way is that the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission orders the driver's license suspension. The net effect is the same. But the ways of fighting the suspension are very different.
The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (“MVC”) is what is called an “administrative agency.” It was formerly known as the New Jersey Division of Motor vehicles (“DMV”). When the New Jersey MVC suspends your driver's license, that suspension is called an “administrative suspension.”
This site deals only with administrative suspensions. Pages on this site detail different situations that can cause the New Jersey MVC to issue an administrative suspension. We also discuss some of the procedures involved. Finally, we discuss the Law Offices of New Jersey Driver's License Lawyer Allan Marain. We discuss how its lawyers can work to minimize the duration of or, in many cases, avoid completely, the devastation of a suspension of your driver's license.
