The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) announced it has placed most of its standard forms online, allowing customers to fill out the forms directly from their electronic devices prior to their MVC visit.
The change means customers will no longer have to wait until they get to an MVC licensing or vehicle center to collect and complete forms for everything from learner’s permit and driver’s license applications to disabled veteran placards, according to a press release.
“With this new service, we are making these forms accessible to our customers on their own terms,’’ MVC Chief Administrator Sue Fulton said. “This will also expedite processes inside our agencies, as customers come with their forms already filled out and their documentation prepared.’’
Previously, many of the forms now available online at NJMVC.gov were only available at licensing and vehicle centers, where customers had to complete them in person before they could get served, according to the press release.
The forms will continue to be available at agencies for individuals who do not access them online.
The new format allows for information to be typed into allotted spaces from a computer keyboard, laptop or other personal electronic device.
Known as a “fillable form,” the document can then be printed, signed and brought to the agency where it will be scanned and processed by an MVC employee at the customer service window. Some forms, such as registration renewals, can also be printed and mailed to MVC offices, according to the press release.
The offering is another step in the MVC’s push toward more customer convenience that includes continual additions to its menu of online services and a text notification service that allows customers to leave an agency and return closer to the time an MVC employee is available to assist them.
