“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.
In addition to your driver’s license suspension being over, you must also have paid the fines to the court, and you must have attended the mandatory alcohol and drugs classes at the Intoxicated Driver’s Resource Center (known as IDRC). Once you complied with all of those requirements, you are eligible to have your driving privileges restored.
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.
