Can I Get My License Back Early After A Suspension?

Getting your driver’s license suspended can be a major inconvenience, especially in New Jersey where there are no exceptions for when you can drive. Do you have to get to work? Too bad, your license is suspended. This is why it is key to find out why your’s is suspended and what you can do to get it back. Sometimes you can get your license back quickly, but other situations offer a few more complications. If you are confused about whether or not you are allowed to drive or if more needs to be done to appease the state, a Bergen County traffic ticket attorney from our firm can help you.

How Can My License Be Suspended?

There are a variety of ways for the state to suspend your license, so sometimes it takes some calling around to figure out exactly why your suspension is in place. In some cases, the court has ordered your suspension. This could be for violation of criminal or motor vehicle codes, failure to pay a parking ticket, or even due to back child support that you owe.

In other cases, the MVC, or motor vehicle commission, has ordered your license suspended. This could be due to a failure to pay any fines, driving without insurance, or an inability to finish a mandated course that the MVC wants you to finish. The MVC can also be a problem after your court-related suspension has been lifted. You still may owe fees or have other requirements to meet.

How Do I Get My License Back?

You are going to have to follow the directions of the court, the MVC, or both to get your driver’s license restored. Some suspensions last for a set amount of time. Other suspensions last until you appear in court, pay a fine, or fulfill some other requirement. For the latter type of suspension, it is easy to get your license back as quickly as possible as long as you follow instructions. For those suspensions with a set time limit, there is not much that you can do. You have to wait things out.

What Comes Next?

Once your license suspension has ended, there are still a few more steps that you have to take in order to avoid more ire from the state. You must:

  • Call the MVC to see if driving privileges have been restored
  • Pay a license restoration fee of $100
  • Restore your registration, if necessary
  • Complete necessary driving tests if you have been without a license for a long time
  • Get your new license

Trying to drive before you complete all of these steps could just get you into even more trouble.
