New Jersey DWI License Suspension and Travel
For a first offense, your license can be suspended for up to one year. Repeat offenders will face more time than this.
New Jersey does not offer limited licenses or work permits so a one year suspension means no driving at all.
This makes getting to and from where you need to go both cumbersome and expensive. This is difficult to estimate as costs will vary due to the availability of public transport and other factors. However, even using a modest estimate of $100 per week, these costs quickly add up to the tune of $5,000 over a year.
