New Jersey Speeding Ticket Points and Penalties

Speeding is handled in the traffic court where the alleged Speeding violation occurred. The penalties for Speeding can be stiff compared to other New Jersey traffic violations.

If you are convicted of speeding, the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) records points on your license:

  • § 39:4-98 – New Jersey Speeding: Exceeding maximum speed 1-14 mph over limit = 2 points
  • § 39:4-99 – New Jersey Speeding: Exceeding maximum speed 15-29 mph over limit = 4 points
  • § 39:4-99 – New Jersey Speeding: Exceeding maximum speed 30 mph or more over limit = 5 points

Once you reach a certain point total on your New Jersey Drivers License, the MVC will impose Point Surcharges in addition to any court-imposed fines and penalties on your traffic ticket.

In addition, the level of your car insurance premiums may increase depending on the number of points you have accumulated on your New Jersey Drivers License.

You may be wondering, how many points does it take to suspend your license in NJ? As if the points were not enough, many New Jersey traffic court Judges will suspend your New Jersey Driver’s License for 30 to 60 days, just depending on how many miles over the speed limit you were traveling. Additionally, the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission indicates that the accumulation of 12 points or more at any time can cause a license suspension.
