NJ Restricted Driver’s Licenses……Truth or Myth After New Jersey DWI?

N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 and N.J.S.A. 39:3-40 set forth the penalties, including NJ license suspension, for defendants convicted of DWI in New Jersey. At this time, the NJMVC [formerly the NJDMV] does not issue any restricted or hardship driver’s licenses for people who are suspended for any reason, including NJ DWI. This means that if your driver’s license is suspended for a New Jersey DUI conviction, you cannot drive for any reason, e.g. work, school, medical appointments, or emergencies. Please note that N.J.S.A. 39:3-40 sets forth the enhanced penalties for driving while suspended after a New Jersey drunk driving conviction. Such enhanced penalties include increased fines, additional driver’s license suspension period, and most notably, jail from 10 – 90 days.
