"Allowing a Revoked Operator to Drive a Motor Vehicle"

Allowing a revoked operator to drive a motor vehicle N.J.S.A. 39:3-40(h) is an offense when defendant knows that the person he or she is permitting to drive their vehicle has a suspended license.

The offense is more severe if the suspension resulted from a drunk driving charge.

The state must prove that the owner of the vehicle knew that the driver was suspended.

A person convicted of this violation is subject to his or her own driving privileges being revoked up to six months.

Permitting a suspended driver to drive in East Brunswick, New Jersey, for instance, also exposes the defendant to imposition of surcharges from New Jersey Motor Vehicle every year for three years and nine insurance eligibility points from his or her insurance carrier.
