What is a Prayer for Judgment Continuance (PJC)?

0

“PJC” stands for Prayer for Judgment Continuance. It is a judge-made remedy, available in some cases to suspend indefinitely the court’s judgment in a case. In most traffic cases, a PJC is not a conviction and will not result in an increase in automobile insurance premiums. It is important to remember two sets of rules when contemplating the request: the rules of the Division of Motor Vehicles and the rules of your insurance company. Typically, the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles is going to disregard a third or subsequent PJC in a five year period. In other words, if you already have two PJCs and you get another, it will be ignored by the DMV and your record will reflect a conviction for the charge on which you were granted the PJC. Also, remember that insurance companies will only “honor” a single PJC in a three-year period, pursuant to a North Carolina General Statute commonly referred to as the Safe Driver Incentive Plan.
