Murphy said this Saturday the offices will not be open, but they will be on following Saturdays, and he has called back all furloughed employees to get “all hands on deck.” Normal business hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday starting July 18.

If you need to conduct business with the DMV, start at the motor vehicle website. If you received your paperwork in the mail, go to and find the link that applies to the business you need to conduct.

If you do need to go to the DMV, keep in mind that the Randolph facility, which is the closest to Denville, has been designated as a licensing center.


Use the Randolph facility for transactions having to do with your driver’s licenses, with a few exceptions. It will handle first-time licenses – which will get priority – and permits, and REAL ID if you have an appointment (keep in mind, the necessity for REAL ID on flights has been extended to Oct. 1, 2021). The Randolph center also will handle out-of-state transfers and expired commercial driver’s licenses. It will not handle driver knowledge tests, registrations or title work. It also will not do renewals, replacements, or changes of address for unexpired licenses because you can do that online.

Vehicle Centers

Sussex and Warren are the closest vehicle centers to Denville. Go to a vehicle center if you need to register or conduct a title transfer of a vehicle for a private sale, get a new registration or title, or conduct a license plate transaction. Don’t go to these centers for renewals or unexpired registrations because you can do that online, and don’t go to these centers for driver’s license transactions because you need to go to Randolph, a licensing center.

Road Testing

If your appointment is scheduled for June 29 or later, you should show up for your appointment.

If your appointment was canceled during the COVID-19 closure, you should have received a letter with a link to schedule your appointment at one of the 11 Road Test sites that is serving those who were canceled. If you should have received a letter but did not, contact MVC.

If you do not yet have an appointment, you can make one at The link is at the top of the page – “Driver Testing.”


Randolph is the closest inspection center to Denville. You can also have your vehicle inspected at private inspection facilities, such as service stations, for a fee.
