Are New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission agencies closed? What if my driver license expires or my vehicle is due for an inspection?

All New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission agencies, road testing, and inspection facilities remain closed to the public as a measure to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, through Sunday, April 12.

Most renewals, replacements, changes of address, and other transactions can be processed online.


All driver's licenses, non-driver IDs, vehicle registrations, and inspection stickers expiring between March 13 and May 31 have been extended by two months from the previous expiration date.

If your expiration date is March, you are extended until the same date in May. If your expiration date is April, you are extended until the same date in June. If your expiration date is May, you are extended until the same date in July.

In addition, the federal REAL ID requirement has been extended for another year, until October 2021.


REAL ID Appointments: Keep your cancellation email -- When the Agencies re-open, you can get a walk-in appointment at any time for 30 days by showing your cancellation email.

Road Test Appointment: Road tests, including commercial road tests, are suspended. When we re-open, those whose appointments were cancelled will receive priority handling. We will also re-open with increased capacity in order to clear the backlog quickly.

Pre-Conference Hearing: Pre-conference hearings are currently suspended. We are working to create options to continue pre-conference hearings if closure continues beyond what is currently planned. We will contact you directly if we are able to conduct your hearing remotely.

NOTE: MVC Essential Personnel should report to work as previously directed.
