MVC Opens Modernized South Plainfield Agency
MVC Returns to Area after a One-Year Hiatus

(SOUTH PLAINFIELD) – As part of the Murphy Administration’s efforts to enhance agency performance and improve customer service, the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) today announced the opening of a new and improved agency located in South Plainfield.

“Today the MVC reaffirms its commitment to providing excellent service to customers in the South Plainfield area,” said MVC Chair and Chief Administrator Sue Fulton. “We are pleased that we have been able to return to South Plainfield approximately one year after vacating the previous site, six months ahead of the typical timeline for such a large project.”

The new agency, located at 5000 Hadley Road, is easily accessible from Route 287.  It features 8,500 square feet of customer and employee space, along with expanded service windows, photo stations, training rooms, customer waiting areas and parking.  The internal layout was designed with customer service in mind, and is optimized for the MVC’s new business practices, as well as, improved technology with updated phone, data, and security wiring.

 “Since the closure of the previous South Plainfield agency, volume at nearby agencies has increased by as much as 25%,” added Fulton.  “Adding this updated facility should help to reduce traffic to those other locations, helping us to provide better service to all of our customers in Middlesex County and surrounding areas.”

While the MVC strives to ensure that its 39 brick-and-mortar agency locations are serving the needs of the motoring public, many customers may not need to visit a physical location at all.  With more than 20 online services and the option to Skip the Trip and renew driver licenses by mail, customers are finding it easier than ever to conduct their motor vehicle business.

More information about MVC locations, available online services and Skip the Trip is available at
