A: The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission does not assign points unless and until a judgment of conviction for a motor vehicle offense is entered by the Municipal Court. This can appear to be a seamless process, but without the conviction, no points will be applied to the license. Therefore, if the Court dismisses the charge, then MVC will not assign points.
