Online Services Will Continue Operations

TRENTON – New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Chief Administrator Sue Fulton has announced that the closure of all MVC road testing, and inspections facilities will be extended until April 12, as a measure to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Chief Fulton said that operations, such as agency and road testing, bring people into closer proximity to each other than is recommended under current public health guidelines.

“We cannot have crowds like the ones that are drawn to our agencies during a pandemic,’’ Chief Fulton said. “The health of our employees and our customers takes priority.’’

“Fortunately, we have expanded our online capabilities over the past year and many of our customers can get their business taken care of that way,’’ she said. “In most cases you can renew your license, replace a lost license, change your address, renew your registration, and conduct other transactions through our easy-to-use online portal.’’

Working with Gov. Murphy, Chief Fulton ordered the initial closure from Mar. 17 through Mar. 30. With the threat from COVID-19 continuing and New Jersey having the second-most cases in the U.S., officials determined it best to continue the closures through at least April 12.
