How to Remove Violations From a Driving Record in New Jersey

Save

Totaling up points on your driving record in New Jersey is bad news. For every traffic violation for which you are convicted -- from failing to stop at a red light or tailgating to leaving the scene of an accident -- a series of points are added to your record. A driver receiving 12 points can have their license revoked. While it can take time, removing violations from a driving record in New Jersey can be done.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Driving program certification
  • Obey all traffic laws and keep your driving record clean. Maintaining a violation-free record for 12 consecutive months will result in the removal of three points from your license. For every 12-month period you remain violation free, another three points will be removed.

  • Enroll in a defensive driving course. Attend a course in person or enroll in an online program. Expect to spend a minimum of around $50 to take the course. Complete six hours of classroom time reviewing traffic laws, watching safety videos and completing short assignments.

  • Take the multiple choice quiz offered at the end of the course. Completing and passing the quiz results in a certification of completion. New Jersey driving schools -- online or otherwise -- automatically report your certification to the Motor Vehicle Commission where you will receive a two-point reduction on your license.
