Conviction of the any of the offenses listed below will result in the following points assessed against your New Jersey driving record. An accumulation of 12 or more points can result in suspension of your license and driving privileges.

Except for a parking ticket, a record of this conviction will be sent the Motor Vehicle Commission or DMV of the state that issued your license. Effective September 30, 2005, holders of a commercial driver’s license may have their CDL license suspended for conviction of two or more serious traffic violations – even if the violations were committed in a non-commercial motor vehicle.
