In New Jersey, you can lose your driving privileges for accumulating too many points against you for moving violations. Points against you will not only get you closer to losing your driver’s license; in New Jersey, they can also increase the amount of your MVC fines for future violations. The chart at the bottom of the page outlines the points against your driver’s license if found guilty of the moving violation listed.

If you receive a traffic ticket for a moving violation, you should contact an experienced defense attorney to help you avoid the points associated with a moving violation in New Jersey. An experienced lawyer may be able to help you avoid points, thus keeping your insurance rates down and allowing your driving record to remain in tact.
