Consequences of a License Suspension

The consequences of a license suspension could send ripples into all aspects of your daily life. From educational opportunities to workplace necessities, everything can fall away at the wayside if your right to drive legally is taken away.

To add even more trouble onto getting your driver’s license suspended, you must wait for a written notice to be mailed to you announcing that your driving privileges have been restored. In some cases, just waiting for this documentation can stack multiple days, or longer, on top of your suspension. A scenario involving unreliable mail sources could easily become a massive headache, undue in origin, if you are not notified properly and in a timely manner. Making matters worse, if you are pulled over for driving while your license is suspended, you could be facing five years of jail time.

Driver’s license suspensions may occur in New Jersey due to any of the following reasons:

  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Dangerous driving behaviors
  • Missing court dates
  • Lack of proof of insurance
  • 12 or more points on driving record
  • Abandoning vehicle on public highway
  • Failing to pay fees to state

Harsher Penalties for Commercial Truck Drivers

If you have a commercial driver’s license, you need to be especially careful when obeying the rules of the road, as even the slightest violation can revoke your driving privileges. Most commonly, commercial truckers are accused of driving while intoxicated, which only requires that they have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that reports 0.04% when tested; this is merely half the amount any other motorist can consume before being considered unlawfully drunk behind the wheel. The first order of business for the opposition will be to try to get your license suspended, so your first decision should be to defend yourself with the help of a professional.

Additional Penalties You Could Face

Refusing to take a blood, urine, or breath test will automatically trigger New Jersey State’s “implied consent” law. Under this provision, the New Jersey Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will immediately revoke your license for up to two years when you refuse to take any form of chemical testing, as requested by an officer of the law. In addition to losing your license, intoxicated or not, you could be hit with a $1,000 surcharge with a three year duration. If it is determined that your DUI/DWI could be linked to some sort of drug or alcohol abusive behavior, you will also be required to complete a 16-week or more treatment program.

    "My case had a successful outcome."
    Ryan was compassionate, intelligent, efficient and thorough; he gave good advice, represented me in court, and was successful in winning a reduction in my property taxes. I wholeheartedly recommend him. I know he handles other types of cases as well.

    "Great job protecting my future"
    Ryan was a trusted adviser throughout the course of my legal issues. I was unfamiliar with legal proceedings and Ryan was able to explain to me my legal situation, and risks associated with various defenses and decisions I had to make. He took the time to explain all the scenarios to my satisfaction which gave me piece of mind and comfort. Ryan was also very responsive through various forms of communications (phone, email, text) which made keeping in contact convenient throughout the process. Ryan showed up on time (early in fact) to various appointments and appeared to handle relationship building effectively with opposing attorneys and the prosecutor. At the end of the day, I was very satisfied with the work done by Ryan as the outcome of my legal matter was better than I had expected and kept my reputation in tact, which undoubtedly will help me pursue my future career/professional ambitions.

    "Professionalism at its best"
    Mr. Gilbert has made my case easy and clear to understand without all the legal jargon. He took time to help me clearly understand my case and kept me updated with all occurrences. Also, the case had been postponed and he waited alongside and had a friendly chat at the nearby Starbucks and besides giving me a great case result, he made me feel as if I had someone by my side. Patient, honest, and soft spoken, Ryan is not someone else whom just told me what to do and I just say yes too, like previous attorneys I had. I will always suggest and use Ryan Gilbert as my attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Attentive, fast responding, professional, expert"
    Attentive, fast responding, professional and expert is how I would describe the attention and service that I received from Mr. Gilbert. He solved my matter quickly and explained in very clear terms each step and set expectation for action on all sides. I was very pleased with how my matter was resolved and would recommend Mr. Gilbert to those requiring legal services. If needed I would absolutely seek Mr. Gilbert's council again.
    - Former Client
    "An invaluable asset to anyone"
    Mr. Gilbert is an excellent attorney. His knowledge and experience make him an invaluable asset to anyone looking for an attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Ryan could not have been more helpful"
    I found myself in quite a situation and Ryan could not have been more helpful in my time of need. Ryan worked tirelessly and did whatever he could to secure for me the best possible outcome. Even when I first called, I never could have imagined having my case resolve as positively as it did. Thank you so much Ryan!
