New Jersey Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions

by Seth Azria on 2/03/2014

A New Jersey driver convicted of a moving violation in New York will acquire points on their New Jersey driving record.

New Jersey is a member the Driver License Compactand the Nonresident Violator Compact with a majority of other US states including New York. Through these agreements, the member states share information on all traffic violations. A driver licensed in NJ, convicted of a moving violation in New York, such as speeding, will receive 2 points on their New Jersey driving record.

Our goal is to minimize the affect of your New York traffic ticket both in New York and in your home state. One important point to keep in mind is that even though you are licensed in New Jersey, the New York State DMV will still fine you if you accumulate 6 points in any 18 month period - these fines are called a “driver responsibility assessments” and are similar to the New Jersey surcharges described below. 

Please call (315) 364-1155 to discuss your New York traffic ticket with a traffic lawyer.

New Jersey Points and Suspensions 
  • 6 or More points within a 3 year period will cause a surcharge of $150 plus $25 for each point over 6. This fee will be due once a year for three years.
  • 12 or more points on your current driving record will result in a suspension. 

See the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission for more on Points and Fines

To find out how many points you have on your NJ Driver History Abstract you can obtain a copy of your record from the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission.

Better than I hoped for

I hired Mr. Habib to represent me in my recent DWI case on the recommendation of a friend. He handled my case professionally and with great knowledge of the process. I consider his experience as a former assistant DA to be one of his best assets. Knowing the other side of the system as well as he does allows him to apply a strong and efficient strategy to achieve the best possible outcome for there defendant, and quickly. Mr. Habib was able to get my criminal charge reduced to a violation, other tickets were dropped, and even got the fine reduced by several hundred dollars, all in just two court dates. I feel very fortunate to have received the outcome I did, and Mr. Habib was 100% responsible for that.

My experience with Seth Azria

I had multiple traffic tickets that included two misdemeanors, speeding, seat belt, expired inspection you name it I had it. Seth was very proficient, effective beyond my expectations, always returned my calls and kept me notified. I know almost nothing related to the law and he was was capable of explaining things in "normal English." I highly recommend him to anyone. On a 5 star scoring system, I rate him as a 10. Thank you Seth.

Professional and reliable, highly recommended

After receiving a ticket upstate NY, I contacted Seth's firm based on the great reviews on this board and was really happy that I made this choice.

Seth explained the possible outcome in my case when I first called him and managed to achieve exactly what he told me, which shows that he is experienced and knowledgeable in his area of practice. He successfully negotiated with a DA a reduction of charges from a 6 point speeding to a non-speeding violation without me having to appear in court in person.

Monica, Seth's paralegal, kept me informed of all necessary details throughout the whole two month process and I received a response to every email that I sent to the firm.

I would highly recommend Seth's firm for anyone looking for reliable and professional attorney services.

So helpful and easy to work with

Mr. Habib and his staff helped me with a traffic matter and achieved an outcome that I was very happy with! I am from outside of the area and Mr. Habib explained the matter to me and told me about my various options, advising me on what I should do to handle the situation. I didn't even have to meet with him in person or attend any hearings, etc., it was all taken care of by Mr. Habib and his staff. I recommend Mr. Habib highly to anyone facing legal issues in NY. I am a very satisfied customer!
