Uninsured Motorist Suspensions (UMS)
New Jersey law prohibits the registration, or, if already registered, the operation, of a motor vehicle unless it is covered by specified limits of liability insurance coverage (N.J.S.A. 39:6B-1). If you received a scheduled suspension or order of suspension for being an Uninsured Motorist, (Look for one of the following event codes on top left side of your letter: UMS-S-ICRG, UMS-O-ICRG, UMS-S-ICLS, UMS-O-ICLC) you must do the following to restore your privileges:
- Submit a photocopy of your current NJ insurance identification card for the vehicle(s) (but not for the cancelled policy); OR
- Submit a photocopy of the declaration page of your current insurance policy describing the vehicle(s) and coverage.
If you no longer own or use the vehicle(s), or if it is registered in another state, you must:
- Surrender the registration certificate(s) and license plates to the MVC; AND submit a photocopy of the receipt for the surrendered license plates.
- If the license plates are no longer in your possession, you must submit an RSC-6 form explaining what happened to the license plates. http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/pdf/Vehicles/RSC-6.pdf
The above documentation may be submitted by:
- FAX: 609-777-3178 or 609-777-3179
- Email : UMSSRGROUPMVC@DOT.STATE.NJ.US
- US Mail to the MVC, PO BOX 132, Trenton, NJ 08666
Please include your name, driver's license number, and day time phone number on all correspondence.
If your registration privileges are suspended, you should not drive or operate the vehicle(s) until you have received written notification from the MVC Chief Administrator that your registration privileges, and the registration for that vehicle, have been restored. If your driving privileges have been suspended, you should not operate any vehicle until you have received written notification from the MVC Chief Administrator that your driving privileges have been restored.
If both your driving and registration privileges are suspended, they will not be restored until the above mentioned requirements are met and a $100 restoration fee for each privilege affected is submitted (Registration and License)
