Can I Get The Surcharge Waived In My New Jersey DWI If I’m Out Of Work?

No, your judge almost certainly won’t waive the surcharge payment you’ll owe to New Jersey’s Motor Vehicle Commission.

If you’re convicted of DWI, you’ll owe $1,000 a year for the next three years, even if you’re out of work or underemployed.

Even worse, if you fail to pay your surcharges, your license will be suspended, and ultimately a judge will allow the MVC to collect through involuntary means.

While a DWI conviction can cause you a lot of short term pain, people often forget about the long term consequences, like inflated insurance rates for years, and an extra $1,000 a year tax for three years.

A DWI charge is a big problem, but it doesn’t have to mean a DWI conviction.
