What to do when your license is suspended

If your driving privileges have been suspended, you will need to pay a Restoration Fee of $100. If the judge did not take your license in court, you must surrender it at any MVC Regional Service Center, MVC Agency offering walk-in service or mail to:

Motor Vehicle Commission
Driver Management Bureau
P.O. Box 134
Trenton, New Jersey 08650

  • Do not drive until you restore your license and receive a written notice of restoration
  • If you continue to drive while your license is suspended, you could face up to five years in jail
