New Jersey Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions

by Seth Azria on 10/16/2017

NJ Will Generally Add Two Points for a NY Conviction 

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 Compact and the Non-resident 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 generally 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 may be 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. 

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.

excellent results

Atty Azria explained my real situation and my real choices to me with regard to a moving violation charge in central new york. He then worked to reduce the charges to a no-point non-moving violation. I am extremely happy with these results and would very strongly recommend his firm to everyone.

Google+ Review

Being from out of state, I was happy to find a law firm that was so easy to work with. They were able to get my ticket reduced and they did all the leg work for me. Everything was very straight forward and easy to understand. Hopefully I won't need them in the future but if I do, I know where to turn!

Speeding Ticket

I received a speeding ticket doing 80 in a 65 mph zone. I contacted his office, the process was very quick. All contact was by email and very professional. They told you exactly what was going to happen. He got my ticket down to parking on pavement. No points!!! Minimal fine. His fee was very fair, compared to others. I would definitely recommend this firm...

Would Recommend to Anyone

Seth Azria was recommended to me by a friend. I can't say enough about how well I was treated, his responsiveness, and how my case was handled. My first call to him was on 12/22/14 and we met the same day. My first and last date in court was 1/15/15. The outcome was better than I ever expected it could be and would recommend him to anyone.
