MVC Online

  • The MVC now offers about 75% of transactions online at NJMVC.gov. There are nearly 30 online services available on the website, including most renewals for licenses and registrations.
  • Before scheduling an appointment, customers should first check to see if their transactions can be completed online and skip the trip to an MVC.

Scheduling an Appointment for an In-Person Visit

  • Nearly all in-person transactions at both licensing centers and vehicle centers require an appointment scheduled at NJMVC.gov.
  • Appointments can be scheduled up to 60 days in advance. The MVC has more than doubled daily appointments for license and registration renewals recently.

Appointment Cancellations

  • Any appointments canceled due to an MVC location closure must be rescheduled on the website. Customers will get an email when their appointments have been canceled.
  • If a customer cannot make an appointment, it should be canceled using guidance in the MVC’s confirmation email to open the appointment for others.


  • License/ID and registration renewals that cannot be completed online require an appointment. Renewals are not available on a walk-in basis.

Check Your Documents

  • Customers should check the expiration date on their documents and renew early. Most licenses can be renewed online three months before expiration and most vehicle registrations two months before expiration. If you cannot renew online, make an appointment within the renewal window.

Know Before You Go

  • Before all MVC visits, customers should log on to NJMVC.gov to check if the agency might be closed because of an employee testing positive for COVID-19, or for any other reason. The MVC has 39 locations to serve customers throughout the state.
