Can I have points removed from my license in New Jersey?

When an individual is faced with a traffic ticket for speeding, reckless driving, distracted driving, or any of the other reasons they have violated driving laws in New Jersey, they may also be faced with points on their license. Upon having points added to a driver’s license, they may be subject to increased insurance premiums and if there are too many points in a certain period of time, they may even face a license suspension. After incurring 12 points on a license, a driver will be subject to a license suspension. Of course, this comes as a concern for many drivers in New Jersey who rely on their vehicles to get to work or school.

Luckily, New Jersey offers several programs that can allow a driver to remove points from their license. If a driver goes one year without any traffic violations or suspensions, they can have three points removed from their license. Some of the other options to have points removed include participation in the following programs:

  • The defensive driving program, which removes 2 points
  • The driver improvement program, which removes 3 points
  • The probationary driver program, which removes 3 points
