If you’ve been convicted of Driving While Suspended in New Jersey (N.J.S.A. 39:3-40), you already had a suspension on the books, and may have had extra time imposed as part of your sentence.
In any event, you’ll have to continue with the suspension, and not get caught driving again, until the suspension period ends.
You’ll also have to pay all fines, fees, and surcharges associated with both the original offense and the Driving While Suspended conviction.
Also plan to make a $100 payment to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, which handles license suspensions and restorations.
Your payment can be made at any time during or after your suspension period, and once the suspension period is up, you’ll receive a notice of restoration in the mail, which will allow you to apply for a new driver’s license.
When you’ve been arrested for Driving While Suspended, you may have options that may help shorten your suspension period.
