In New Jersey, when it comes to traffic tickets, the fines and other costs or consequences that you might incur are often not the end of the story. There are the points on your driving record as well. Although unlike other states, New Jersey doesn’t assess points for every moving violation, those that do can add up. Once they do, they can cause a major disruption in your life and threaten your financial freedom.
So in this episode of the podcast, I am going to talk about the specific ways that points can be disruptive, as well as the steps you can take to have them removed. Being proactive with your driving record can lessen the chance of problems (although driving safely and within the rules of the road to avoid tickets in the first place is even better!)
In this episode you will learn:
- How to remove 2 points with a defensive driving class
- When you should take the class, as you can only do it every 5 years
- How to avoid license suspension for points by taking a driver improvement class
- How to avoid suspension of a probationary license for points by taking a probationary driver program
