New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Chief Administrator Sue Fulton has announced that all agency, road testing and inspection facilities will remain closed until at least May 11.
The closures are part of the Murphy Administration’s ongoing efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, according to a press release issued on April 23.
In addition to expanding online services, the MVC is continuing essential operations, including measures to support commercial trucking to keep the supply chain moving during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the press release.
Most renewals of driver licenses, non-driver identifications, and registrations – including, for the first time, some commercial registrations – can be processed online at NJMVC.gov. Customers can change their address, pay fees and obtain other services online as well, according to the press release.
Drivers who have a suspended license may seek to have their license restored, if they are eligible, by using email instead of phone or in-person interactions. Drivers who believe they are eligible for license restoration should email email@example.com
“As Gov. (Phil) Murphy reminds us, public gatherings represent a threat to all of us, as New Jersey works to flatten the curve in this global pandemic,” Fulton said. “The volume of customers that typically visits our agencies would risk the health of our customers and employees alike. We will continue to strive to make as many services available online as possible.”
Working with Murphy, Fulton ordered the initial closure of agencies and inspection stations from March 16 until March 30 and followed that with two-week extensions until April 27, according to the press release.
Expiration dates for driver licenses (including CDLs), registrations, inspection stickers and temporary tags were extended by two months on March 13.
