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
- 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.
