New Jersey Statute 39:3-10 is commonly divided into two parts, referred to as sections A and B even though the statute iteslf doesn’t have those components.  This question deals with the second part, never having had a license.  This is commonly given to immigrants who can’t be issued a New Jersey license.  This law was issued when foreigners could get a license in New Jersey.  So the law doesn’t define what having a “license” means.  It is for that reason that some Municipal Court Judges will accept a license from outside the U.S.

You face a maximum fine of $541, possible surcharge of $100 for three years, 15 days in jail, and loss of license (or the opportunity to get a license) for 180 days. The more often you are convicted of this charge the more likely you will go to jail.
