“How do I get my license back after my suspension is over?”

“How do I get my driver’s license back after a DWI conviction in New Jersey?”

Answer: A simple trip to the DMV should do the trick, but you do not automatically have your driving privileges restored. Just because the amount of time in your license suspension is up, does not mean that you are automatically reinstated with your driving privileges in New Jersey. Once your suspension time is up, you must go to the division of motor vehicles, pay the $100 restoration fee, and at that point, you have your driver’s license back.

If you don’t, and you are pulled over, you will technically be guilty of driving while suspended for DWI. The penalties for this charge are serious, and you could end up in jail, aside from losing your license for a very long time.

While a lawyer might be able to make a case for you in the courtroom, it’s best to avoid this altogether. Get a ride to the DMV the day that your suspension is over, and get your license back fair and square.
