Conditional & Hardship Licenses

confused-person-img

New Jersey Conditional or Hardship Licenses are available depending on the reason for your license suspension.
Every DWI client asks, “If I get a DWI & lose my license for three months, can I get a Conditional License for work?”

After you get arrested for a DWI or DUI, you are at risk of losing your license for a minimum of 3 months.
A hardship license would allow you to get to and from work.

Getting A Conditional Or Hardship License For A Drug Conviction

Under New Jersey law, your driving privilege will be suspended when you plead guilty or are found guilty of a drug crime.

However, if your license is suspended due to a drug conviction, you can ask the court to grant you a conditional or hardship license.

These types of licenses are granted when you can show that you will suffer a “great hardship” from losing your driving privileges.

For example, if you work far away and there’s no public transportation to get to work, a judge may grant a hardship license.

Sadly, the same reasoning does not apply when it comes to DWI convictions.

What If I have A DWI Conviction?

Many States offer limited driving privileges for people who get their license suspended.

For example, States like New York realize that if people don’t work, they cannot pay their bills and function. Unlike New York, New Jersey does not offer conditional or hardships licenses.
Once you lose your license, you cannot drive under any circumstances.

In New Jersey, after a DWI conviction, you are not allowed to drive your car one inch. If you get caught moving your car from one parking spot to another, you face terrible consequences.

New Jersey's DMV Does Not Offer These Types of Licenses

The Motor Vehicle Commission of New Jersey completely opposes conditional and hardship licenses.
As a result, you cannot drive until your privileges are restored.
If you are caught driving during the time your license is suspended, you may face incarceration.

Avoid the need for a conditional License by fighting your dWI

A DWI conviction can really complicate your life.
Although a DWI is not a criminal offense in New Jersey, the consequences are serious.
You will have to pay court costs & fees, participate in the IDRC, pay MVC surcharges, and suffer increased insurance premiums.

The best way to avoid the need for a conditional license in New Jersey is to fight your DWI case.
It may be your best shot at keeping your license.

Navigating the criminal justice system can be a daunting and intimidating experience. However, Peyrouton Law demonstrates an exceptional ability to guide clients through this complex world with the utmost professionalism. The firm embodies a comprehensive combination of knowledge, experience, tenacity, and effective representation. When my 22-year-old son, who resides in Chicago but works in New Jersey, inadvertently neglected to place his legally registered firearm in his checked luggage, he found himself facing arrest. As a mother residing in Chicago, I was overwhelmed with fear and uncertainty, being unfamiliar with New Jersey's criminal justice system. Upon reaching out to Peyrouton Law, they diligently represented my son throughout his legal challenge, alleviating my anxiety and providing much-needed reassurance. I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend this exceptional law firm.
