NJ Point Reduction

If you receive a moving violation in New Jersey, points will be added to your NJ driving license and driving record. Other violations such as parking tickets, do not have points associated with them.

Once you receive 6 points or more within 3 years, the NJ MVC will impose a surcharge of $150 plus point costs.
