Hazlet MVC Closed, Freehold MVC Limited Operations on October 31

TRENTON – On Saturday, October 31, the Hazlet Vehicle Center will be closed, and the Freehold Licensing Center will only support scheduled appointments, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission has announced.

Both the Hazlet closure and the move to appointment-only operations in Freehold are due to staffing issues unrelated to COVID-19.

The Freehold Licensing Center will honor existing appointments for driver knowledge tests, CDL renewals, and other transactions on October 31, but will not provide walk-in service on that day. If you do not have a scheduled appointment, you will not be served at Freehold on Saturday.

The Freehold Inspection Station will remain open and fully operational on October 31.

The Hazlet Vehicle Center will reopen Monday, November 2, when it switches to appointment-only service along with nine other MVC Vehicle Centers.

The Freehold Licensing Center will return to full service, including walk-ins, on November 2.

Other MVC Centers in Manahawkin, Rahway, and Washington remain closed due to an employee testing positive for COVID-19 at each location.

The Manahawkin Vehicle Center will reopen Monday, November 2, also as an appointment-only location. The Rahway Licensing Center and Washington Vehicle Center will both reopen Saturday, November 7.

Customers are reminded to always log on to before heading out to an MVC location, to get the latest updates, make appointments for select transactions, complete all available transactions online, and more.
