Press Release

MVC Agency, Inspection Station Closures Extended Until May 26
Headquarters, Online Services to Continue Operations


TRENTON – New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Chief Administrator Sue Fulton today announced that all agency, road testing, and inspections facilities will remain closed until at least Tuesday, May 26. The closures are part of the Murphy Administration’s ongoing efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

While certain facilities remain closed, many necessary MVC customer functions can be completed through the Commission’s online services, which remain operational and are being expanded. Most renewals of driver licenses, non-driver IDs, and registrations – including, for the first time, some commercial registrations – can be processed online at NJMVC.gov.

Customers can also change their address, pay fees, and access other services online.

Record numbers of customers have utilized the convenience of MVC online services during the closures, including driver license and registration renewals.

For drivers with suspended licenses, email is another means that can be used to seek to get licenses restored if they are eligible.  Drivers who have been notified of suspension for failure to maintain insurance may get more information by emailing UM.info@mvc.nj.gov.  Other drivers who believe they are eligible for restoration should email suspension.info@mvc.nj.gov.

Working with Governor Murphy, Chief Administrator Fulton ordered the initial closure of agencies and inspection stations on March 15. Expiration dates for driver licenses (including CDLs), registrations, inspection stickers, and temporary tags issued through May were extended by two months on March 13.

Customers should check NJMVC.gov for the latest information and updates.
