Two kinds of points exist. These are motor vehicle moving violation points, and motor vehicle “insurance eligibility” points. Both arise from convictions for motor vehicle laws. The two, however, are very different. This page deals only with motor vehicle moving violation points. We discuss motor vehicle insurance eligibility points on a different site that we maintain.

Upon being notified of a conviction, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) imposes points for most moving violations. we indicate the number of points for each type of violation elsewhere. When the number of points reaches twelve or more, the MVC issues a Notice of Scheduled Suspension. The duration of the scheduled suspension is specified in New Jersey Administrative Code Section 13:19-10.2. Here is what N.J.A.C. 13:19-10.2 specifies:

Table of Scheduled Point Suspension Periods

 
Number of Accumulated Points
Time Within Which Accumulated
“Default” Duration of Suspension
12 to 15 Two Years or Less 30 Days
16 to 18 Two Years or Less 60 Days
19 to 21 Two Years or Less 90 Days
22 to 24 Two Years or Less 120 Days
25 to 27 Two Years or Less 150 Days
28 or more Two Years or Less 180 Days or More
12 to 18 More Than Two Years 30 Days
19 to 22 More Than Two Years 60 Days
23 to 26 More Than Two Years 90 Days
27 to 30 More Than Two Years 120 Days
31 to 35 More Than Two Years 150 Days
36 More Than Two Years 180 Days or More

 


Any motor vehicle violation committed with one year after driving privileges are restored following an N.J.A.C. 13:19-10.2 suspension will trigger a new suspension. The duration of the new suspension depends upon how much time has passed since restoration of driver's license. It also depends upon whether there is just one new violation, or two. Those durations are specified in N.J.A.C. 13:19-10.6, as follows:



 
Table of Scheduled New Violation Suspension Periods
Number of New Violations
Time After License Restoration
“Default” Duration of New Suspension
One Within Six Months 90 Days
One More than six months and less than nine months 60 Days
One Between nine months and a year 45 Days
Two Within Six Months 180 Days
Two More than six months and less than nine months 120 Days
Two Between nine months and a year 90 Days

 


Regardless of the numbers presented above, the suspension periods listed in N.J.A.C. 13:19-10.2 and N.J.A.C. 13:19-10.6 are not written in stone. When “good cause” is shown, the MVC can adjust the suspension period. Factors that the MVC considers are the person's driving record, prior warnings or driver improvement program attendance, maturity and any other aggravating or mitigating factor.
