No, if you’re convicted of DUI in New Jersey, you simply aren’t allowed to operate a motor vehicle in the state for the duration of your sentence, and until you have your license restored.
Upon conviction, the court takes your driver’s license, and there’s no procedure by which you can get it back early, or apply for any kind of exception or restricted license to get you to and from work, school, medical appointments, or anything else.
The state considers this to be part of your punishment, and indeed, the hassle of having to bug your friends and relatives for rides is a memorable part of the post-DWI process for everyone.
But the severity of this punishment is another reason to seek out the very best legal defense you can find.
