The consequences of a driving while intoxicated (DWI/DUI) conviction in New Jersey are severe. For example, the first conviction for DWI could result in a loss of license for anywhere from three (3) months to a year. Those found guilty of DWI also face a fine of up to $500 as well as possible imprisonment. Furthermore, New Jersey assesses a surcharge of $1,000 per year for three (3) years.
Failure to pay the surcharge may result in: an indefinite suspension of driving privileges; and action filed in State Superior Court by MVC which may result in securing a lien against your property, garnishing your wages or other similar action. If one is convicted of a repeat offense, the penalties become even more severe: a second conviction within ten (10) years of the first may result in a two (2) year loss of license and a third conviction within ten (10) years of the second may result in loss of license for ten (10) years.
