Out-of-State DUI/DWI Refusal Charge
New Jersey Out of State DUI DWI
An out-of-state DUI/DWI or refusal conviction occurs when a driver with a New Jersey license is convicted of an out-of-state DUI/DWI charge, or refusal to submit to a breathalyzer charge. In this situation, the driver is not exempt from New Jersey law simply because the conviction took place out-of-state, and generally New Jersey DUI/DWI laws still apply.

New Jersey DMV Notification
When a driver with a New Jersey license receives a DUI/DWI conviction in another state, notice of the conviction is sent to the New Jersey DMV. Subsequently, the driver is suspended of his New Jersey driving privileges. This is called an administrative suspension.
New Jersey Penalties Apply
The length of the suspension will be based on the facts of the out-of-state conviction as analyzed under New Jersey Law. Thus, factors such as whether this is the driver’s first, second, or subsequent DUI/DWI offense will be considered in determining the penalties and length of suspension. Note that a previous out-of-state DUI/DWI conviction will be considered a first offense. Additionally, the out-of-state Blood Alcohol Content (“BAC”) must be at a level criminalized in New Jersey in order for the conviction to apply. DMV Surcharges also apply to out-of-state convictions in New Jersey, and can amount to $1,000 per year for a period of 3 years.
