For most drivers, your car and driving privileges enable you to travel back and forth to work, run errands and visit family and friends. The possibility of your license being suspended threatens your ability to do those things. If you are facing the suspension of your license, the attorneys at Sutnick & Sutnick Attorneys at Law can help.
Why Would the MVC Suspend My License?
The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) frequently issues license suspensions for driving infractions. Drivers can have a license suspended for various reasons including:
- Driving recklessly
- Accumulating 12 or more points on your driving record
- Driving under the influence
- Failing to pay fines or surcharges
- Excessive speeding
- Driving after license suspension
How Can I Protect My License?
After receiving a suspension notice from the MVC, you can request a license suspension hearing to challenge the suspension of your license. To request a hearing, you or your attorney must send a letter to the MVC outlining your intent to challenge the suspension and the grounds on which the challenge is based.
The hearing is a vital step toward preventing the suspension of your license. A formal request sent by an attorney significantly increases your chances of obtaining a hearing.
During the hearing, you or your attorney can present factual evidence to challenge or reduce the suspension. In certain cases, your attorney can fight for alternative penalties, such as participation in driver improvement programs.
