Q) Will I have a criminal record if convicted of DWI, DUI or Refusal?

A) NO. Unlike many other states, DWI and DUI offenses are not criminal offenses under New Jersey Law.  Even though not criminal, DWI, DUI and Refusal offenses in New Jersey carry very serious penalties. In addition to the loss of your New Jersey driving privileges you could be sentenced to jail  under certain circumstances.  The conviction will, however, remain on your motor vehicle record.
