An experienced DMV lawyer can challenge your proposed DMV suspension. It is hard to imagine living in New Jersey without a valid driver’s license. Because of the paucity of reliable public transportation in the State, a proposed suspension can strike fear into the driver’s heart for good reason.
The process starts with the New Jersey MVC (DMV) deciding that they are going to suspend your license because of points or some other reason. You are eligible to have your license suspended for points if you have accumulated 12 or more points. The DMV (MVC) will send you a letter notifying you that they intend to suspend your license for a specific amount of time.
You only have a certain amount of time to respond to this notice or your license will be suspended. Many people make the mistake of trying to handle this situation on their own. They usually don’t even get so far as to properly submit the hearing request letter.
A request for a hearing must be made in writing and sent to the MVC in Trenton. The request must comply with certain rules. If your request fails to set forth any disputed material facts, legal issues, or arguments of such issues, the request will be denied and the suspension will become effective on the date specified by the Commission and constitute the Commission’s final decision on the matter. If your MVC – DMV Trenton attorney properly requests a hearing, the suspension will not become effective pending a decision on your request.
