Violations Committed in Other States

Even though you are a New Jersey driver, you can still acquire points and penalties for violations committed in other states.  New Jersey is a member of two compacts that enforce this policy.

The Driver License Compact

  1. Consists of 45 states and the District of Columbia. States not included are Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee and Wisconsin
  2. Members in this compact exchange all violation information. Out-of-state moving violations are worth two points. For example, if you receive a speeding ticket in Florida, you will get two points on your New Jersey driving record for that violation

The Nonresident Violator Compact

  1. Consists of 44 states and the District of Columbia. States not included are Alaska, California, Michigan, Montana, Oregon and Wisconsin
  2. Assures nonresident motorists the same rights and privileges as residents
  3. Nonresident drivers have due process protection and cannot be detained out-of-state
  4. Requires drivers to fulfill the terms of traffic citations received in member states or face the possibility of license suspension in their home state
  5. Does not apply to parking or standing violations, highway weight limit violations and violations of Hazmat transportation laws
