How Many Points Do You Get For A DWI/DUI In NJ?

lady of justice2The answer, surprisingly to many is no DMV points, however, you will receive 9 insurance points.  DWI/DUI in New Jersey is not considered a moving violation for purposes of imposing points, such as speeding, careless driving, reckless driving, etc.  The DWI/DUI offense occurs when the intoxicated individual gets behind the wheel.  Even if you don't start the engine you can still be charged with DWI/DUI in NJ.  Thus, you do not need to be moving to be charged with DWI/DUI.  Of course when you are charged with DWI/DUI you may be given other citations such as speeding, careless driving or whatever the case may be, for which points would be imposed if convicted.
