How can I remove points from my license in New Jersey?
When an individual in New Jersey commits a traffic violation, one of the penalties that they may receive is having points added to their driving record. Generally speaking, the worse the moving violation that was committed, the more points that are added. If a driver has 6 points on their record, they may be subject to a surcharge. If a driver has 12 or more points on their record, they may be subject to a license suspension. In New Jersey, drivers have options to have points removed from their record.
Some of the ways that a driver can have points deducted from their record include the following:
- If the driver goes one year from the date of the last violation without any further violations or suspensions, they may have 3 points deducted.
- If the driver participates in the Defensive Driving Program, they can have 2 points deducted.
- If the driver participates in either the Driver Improvement Program or the Probationary Driver Program, they may have 3 points deducted.
