How long do you lose your license for a DWI in New Jersey?
If you are convicted of or you plead guilty to a DWI in New Jersey, the duration of loss of license can vary depending on certain factors. One factor is the BAC (breath alcohol content) level, if you have submitted to a breathalyzer test. If you're BAC level is .08 or higher, but less than .10, the duration of loss of license is three months. (For first offense only) If you you're BAC level is .10 or higher, the duration of the loss of license is seven months to one year. (First offense only) Another factor consider is whether you have prior DWI convictions. The duration of the loss of license for a Second offense is two years, and ten years for a third offense. There are other issues that can affect the duration of loss of license, and of course there are other penalties in addition to loss of license. (See full NJ DWI Statute)
