Reinstate Suspended License in New Jersey

If your New Jersey driver's license is suspended, luckily the process to reinstate it is fairly simple. The most difficult part of having your driver's license suspended is waiting to have it restored. When it comes time to restore your New Jersey driver's license (if eligible) the cost will be $100. In addition, at the time of suspension, if the officer fails to take your license, you are required to take it upon yourself to return your license to the MVC.

There are many reasons why your license might be suspended. Here are a few:

  • Reckless driving
  • Being the person at fault in a fatal accident
  • Driving while under the influence
  • Receive 12 or more points on your license
  • Unable to produce current proof of insurance

To restore your New Jersey driver's license, you will need to pay the fee and take action regarding any driver improvement courses. You may not drive again until you receive notification by mail that your license has been restored.
