    Chapter 6:

      Section: 39:6-28: Operator or owner involved in accident without license or a nonresident

           (a) In case the operator or the owner of a motor vehicle involved in an accident within this State has no license or registration, or is a nonresident, he shall not be allowed a license or registration until he has complied with the requirements of this act to the same extent that would be necessary if, at the time of the accident, he had held a license and registration.

(b) When a nonresident's operating privilege is suspended pursuant to section three or section five of this act, the director shall transmit a certified copy of the record of such action to the official in charge of the issuance of licenses and registration certificates in the State in which such nonresident resides, if the law of such other State provides for action in relation thereto similar to that provided for in subsection (c) of this section.

(c) Upon receipt of such certification that the operating privilege of a resident of this State has been suspended or revoked in any such other State pursuant to a law providing for its suspension or revocation for failure to deposit security for the payment of judgments arising out of a motor vehicle accident, under circumstances which would require the director to suspend a nonresident's operating privilege had the accident occurred in this State, the director shall suspend the license of such resident if he was the operator, and all of his registrations if he was the owner of a motor vehicle involved in such accident. Such suspension shall continue until such resident furnishes evidence of his compliance with the law of such other State relating to the deposit of such security.
