Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.Yes, unfortunately, the points do transfer. Both New York and New Jersey are members of the Driver’s License Compact and communicate traffic violations between each other.A New Jersey driver that is convicted of a moving violation in New York will be given 2 points by New Jersey’s Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC). This point transfer is regardless of how many points New York assigns to the violation and assumes that New Jersey has a similar or like offense within its laws.It's certainly worth speaking with a traffic lawyer in New York about the traffic ticket first before simply paying the fine, because of course the points can have a negative effect on your insurance rates. You may be able to argue the ticket, or at least keep the points off your license by doing something like a defensive driving class, so your insurance doesn't go up.Please remember to kindly leave a positive rating for me by clicking on the stars, as that is the only way experts are paid for their time even though you may have already paid a deposit to the site.
