Motor Vehicle Points

The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission will add points to your driving record when you commit both major and minor traffic offenses. Major traffic offenses generally come with higher driving record points. 

How it Works

  • If you go one year from the date of the most recent violation without any points or violations, three points will be deducted from your license

  • You'll be forced to pay a surcharge if you receive 6 points or more within a period of 3 years

  • If you accumulate more than 12 points your license may be suspended

Below is a List of Violations and the corresponding points associated with that violation. These violations may carry other penalties including fines, surcharges, court fees, suspension of license and jail sentences. For PDF copy of the list of Motor Vehicle Points click here.
