Ridgewood VIS to Close Permanently

TRENTON - The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) will close its Ridgewood Motor Vehicle Inspection Station permanently after January 31, 2007.

This facility is an appointment-only, two lane inspection station. Technicians there complete about 27,000 vehicle inspections annually. MVC has operated at the Ridgewood facility since 1938.

Motorists who would normally use the Ridgewood facility for vehicle inspection should consider using MVC’s Lodi (9 miles away) or Paramus (6 miles away) Inspection stations starting in February 2007.

For maps and driving directions, hours and service information, please visit MVC online at www.njmvc.gov.

Avoid the end- and beginning-of-the-month rush at MVC inspection stations and agencies by visiting mid-week and mid-month
