Teaneck, NJ asked in Traffic Tickets for New Jersey

Q: My traffic court date has been changed 3 times. Since then I moved to NJ and need to change my license for work. Can I?

I got the ticket back in September 2019 and the date was scheduled for February 2020, due to the pandemic it got changed to March and then July and now January 2021. I need to change my NY license to an NJ since I moved here back in March. I’ve tried to plead guilty online and pay the fine but my appearance is required. Is there anything I can do at all? I really need to switch my license for work.

A: You need to call the MVC to check, but as long as you don't have a warrant it should not cause a problem in getting your license in NJ

A: I would speak with a lawyer, who can contact the court clerk and prosecutor, and resolve your case and move it ahead on the docket with a guilty plea by affidavit, where there is no live court appearance.
