How Long Will A Past DWI Conviction Count Towards My Current DWI Case In New Jersey?

The window where a prior conviction will mean being charged with a second offense on a subsequent DWI stop in New Jersey is 10 years.

If you’re charged with DWI twice in a ten year period, you’ll face enhanced penalties as a second offender, including loss of your driver’s license for up to two years, a jail sentence of up to 90 days, and a required Ignition Interlock Device on your vehicle for one to three years after license reinstatement.

A DWI charge is a serious problem for a driver in New Jersey, but a second DWI offense in a ten year period can keep you off the road for years.

You have to fight back if your want to keep your license.
