TRENTON, NJ - With Motor Vehicle facilities remaining closed, expiration dates on critical driving and vehicle documents will be once again extended. Governor Phil Murphy and New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Chief Administrator Sue Fulton announced on Monday additional extensions to driver license, registration, and inspection expiration dates in continuing efforts to mitigate COVID-19 and safeguard public health.
"Extending the expiration dates further is the right move with our agencies closed to the public, as we work to stamp out the threat of COVID-19 together,” Fulton said. “Get it done online now, if you’re able. We do anticipate that volumes will spike once we reopen and when we reach the end of these extensions. Our job is to serve customers in the most efficient way possible and one way we can do that is by steering people to our expanded list of online services.”
Effective immediately, the following documents, if expiring between March 13 and May 31, have been extended to July 31. Documents expiring June 30 are extended two months to August 31, and those expiring July 31 are extended to September 30.
- All Standard driver licenses (including permits) and standard non-driver IDs
- Privately owned and commercial vehicle registrations
- Vehicle inspections
- Purple Heart/Disabled Veteran placards
- Temporary tags
On March 13, the NJMVC initially announced two-month extensions for licenses, registrations, and inspection stickers expiring in March, April, and May, timelines that have now been pushed back.
The NJMVC encourages customers to utilize online services, which have been expanded during the COVID-19 crisis. In most cases, customers can renew a license, replace a lost license, change an address, renew a registration, and complete other transactions through the NJMVC’s Online Services portal.
