Other Drug and Alcohol Offenses

DWI While Suspended

If the driver operates his or her motor vehicle while on the revoked list for a drunk  driving conviction, then he or she will face enhanced punishment under N.J.S.A. 39:3-40. For a first offender, the driver will lose his or her ability to register motor vehicles in New Jersey. Such a driver will also be subject to enhanced fines, license loss and a mandatory jail term.

If a driver is caught and thereafter convicted, the court must;

  • Fine you $500.
  • Suspend your driving privileges for one to two years.
  • Order your imprisonment in the county jail for 10 to 90 days.

If you have an accident and someone is hurt while your license is suspended then you must also serve a mandatory 45 day jail sentence.
