Did you receive a Notice of Scheduled Suspension from the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission? If so, then you are likely pending a formal suspension of your Driver’s License. The length of the proposed suspension will depend upon the number of points currently assessed to your license as well as the time frame in which you acquired these points. Assuming you received the notice before your suspension period has begun, you will be able to stop the license suspension pending a formal appeal.

How Can I Avoid a Scheduled Suspension from NJ Motor Vehicle Commission?
A notice of a proposed scheduled suspension can often be appealed. However, the process of perfecting your appeal and preserving your rights must be taken seriously. The Motor Vehicle Commission, commonly referred to DMV, can deny any hearing request that fails to set forth the grounds under which you are contesting the matter. Failure to obtain a hearing is an almost guarantee that your license will be suspended. If you retain counsel to perfect your appeal, you can avoid the upcoming suspension date and set your matter own for a preliminary hearing with the Motor Vehicle Commission for settlement. If you are unable to resolve your matter at this level, the case will be referred to the Office of Administrative Law for a full hearing
What Happens at an NJ License Suspension Hearing?
Depending upon where you reside, your license suspension hearing will either take place in Paterson or Trenton. If a MVC Scheduled Suspension Hearing is acquired at either the Trenton or Paterson location, the driver (and his or her lawyer, if they have one). There, you will be able to present the facts of your case and argue the merits, or lack thereof, behind the State’s case. Depending upon the conclusions of the Hearing Officer, DMV will either dismiss, lower and keep your proposed license suspension.
An experienced Motor Vehicle Commission Suspension lawyer can make a big difference in your case. Depending upon your qualifications, we may be able to avoid a suspension in lieu of enrollment in a Driver Improvement Program. Additionally, if the DMV attempts to introduce circumstantial or hearsay evidence, we may be able to suppress the evidence and avoid the suspension entirely. For more information, contact our office.
