Unlicensed Driver Charges in New Jersey
Morris County Traffic Offense Lawyer
State law requires a person possess a valid driver's license to operate a motor vehicle. An unlicensed driver under 17 years old and involved in a DUI can face serious consequences imposed by the MVC such as large fines, community service, drug and alcohol programs, and other possible penalties. The underage offender may be subject to a delay of 30-90 days in processing his or her driver's license when becoming eligible. Any unlicensed driver may receive fines dictated by the MVC and an annual insurance surcharge of $100 for three years totaling $300.
Driver's License Laws
The penalties set by the Motor Vehicle Commission in New Jersey are strict for anyone in violation of traffic laws. A driver may consider that a traffic offense is not very significant but it can affect the ability to maintain driving privileges, can carry large fines, and in some instances mean time spent in jail.
