LATEST DMV INFO

All driver licenses, nondriver IDs, vehicle registrations, inspection stickers, and temporary tags expiring before May 31 have been extended to July 31. Documents expiring in June or July are extended by two months. In addition, the federal REAL ID requirement has been extended for another year, until October 2021. Most renewals of driver licenses, nondriver IDs, and registrations — including some commercial registrations — can be processed online at NJMVC.gov.

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

Going forward, everyone who enters a Motor Vehicle Commission agency will be required to wear a face covering. That includes customers as well as employees.

If a customer cannot wear a face covering, MVC will make other arrangements for their transaction, the county health department said.
