Driving with a suspended license in Sussex County or Warren County, New Jersey, will result in fines, an additional license suspension and jail time for a repeat offense.

Driving with a Suspended License in New Jersey

The statute makes no exception for any circumstances in which it is permissible to drive while on a suspended license. Accordingly, the punishments for driving on a suspended license are harsh. The general penalties for driving on a suspended driver’s license are as follows: for a first offense: a fine of $500 and an additional six-month license suspension; for a second offense: a fine of $750, an additional six-month license suspension and one to five days in jail; and for a third or subsequent offense: a fine of $1,000, an additional six-month license suspension, and ten days in jail. And in some situations, such as causing an accident, driving with a license that was suspended due to not having insurance, or driving on a license suspended as the result of driving while intoxicated, there are penalty enhancements that will increase the fines and applicable term of imprisonment.

Specifically, if a driver with a suspended license is involved in an accident resulting in bodily injury to another person, the court shall impose a period of imprisonment for not less than 45 days or more than 180 days. If a driver with a suspended license that was suspended due to a failure to have car insurance, then there is an additional $500 penalty, an additional suspension of not less than one year nor more than two years, and potential incarceration for not more than 90 days. Finally, a driver with a suspended license as the result of driving while intoxicated shall be fined $500, shall have their driver’s license suspended for an additional period of not less than one year or more than two years, and shall be imprisoned in the county jail for not less than 10 days or more than 90 days.
