Interstate Compacts

New Jersey belongs to two Interstate Compacts. Member states exchange information to ensure driver compliance with the law and that they receive penalties for violations.

The Nonresident Violator Compact includes 44 states* and the District of Columbia, assures nonresident motorists the same rights and privileges as resident motorists, requires drivers to fulfill the terms of traffic citations received in member states or face the possibility of license suspension in their home state, provides that nonresident drivers have due process protection and cannot be detained out -of -state.

*Alaska, California, Michigan, Montana, Oregon and Wisconsin are not members. Note:

The compact does not apply to parking or standing violations, highway weight limit violations, and violations of Hazmat transportation laws.

The National Driver License Compact exchanges violation information with other states* and the District of Columbia, ensures that out -of -state violations become part of your NJ driving record. Two points are assessed for each moving violation.

*Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee and Wisconsin are not members.
