MVC Matawan Agency to Close
New Agency to Open in Hazlet

(TRENTON) – The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) will permanently close its Matawan Agency at Route 34 and Broad Street, at 4:30 p.m., on Thursday, January 4, 2007. There will be no late night on that day.

On Monday, January 8, 2007, MVC will open a new, larger agency within four miles of the Matawan location at 1374 Highway 36, in the Airport Plaza Mall, in Hazlet.

Hazlet hours of operation will be weekdays 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with evening hours on Thursdays until 7:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to Noon.

Customers should be aware that neither agency will be open Friday and Saturday, January 5 and 6, in order for the move to take place. All other area MVC Agencies will be open for regular business hours. If necessary, customers may visit the Eatontown Regional Service Center at 109 Highway 36, the East Brunswick Agency at 271 Route 18, or check www.njmvc.gov for alternate locations.

Customers are also reminded to avoid the end- and beginning-of-the-month rush at MVC agencies by planning to visit mid-week and mid-month. Also visit www.njmvc.gov to complete almost one dozen transactions online.
