Frequently Asked Questions
Myth Versus Fact
If my license gets suspended for a DWI conviction, can I obtain a conditional license that will allow me to drive to work?
Contrary to popular belief, New Jersey does not have a conditional driver’s license program or work license program. If you sustain a Driving under the influence or chemical test refusal conviction, your license will be suspended and you will not be permitted to drive under any circumstances—no exceptions. Moreover, if you are caught driving while your license is suspended, you are subject to the traditional penalties for a violation of driving while suspended, as well as additional “enhanced” penalties. These enhanced penalties include an additional 1- to 2-year license loss, an additional large fine, and a mandatory minimum of 10 to 90 days in jail. There are no exceptions to the jail term.
If my BAC reading was below .08% or I refused to provide breath samples and I have no reading, can the state still convict me for DUI?
Another thing to consider is that the state can prove a DWI charge by the officer’s observation of your driving, as well as by field observations
If I have out-of-state license and I am convicted of DWI in New Jersey, will I still be required to pay the $1,000-per-year surcharge to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission?
