Drivers will get another two month extension on expired licenses, registrations, inspection stickers and temporary labels due to the coronavirusofficials from the State Motor Vehicle Commission (VMC) said on Monday.

The announcement came after Gov. Phil Murphy on Monday explained how a Coronavirus closures phased reopening plan would work. He noted that gatherings of people, such as waiting in line at MVC agencies, would be allowed in the later stages.

Drivers will receive a further two-month extension on expiring permits, registrations, inspection stickers and temporary labels, officials from the state’s Motor Vehicle Commission said on Monday. This announcement includes documents that expire this summer.

How it works?

If your permit, registration, inspection sticker or temporary label expires between March 13 and May 31, they now expire on July 31. Documents expiring on June 30 are extended for two months until August 31 and those expiring on July 31 are extended until September 30. officials said.

This is the second extension after the initial two-month extension made by the MVC on March 13.

“Extending the expiration dates further is the right move with our agencies closed to the public, as we work together to eradicate the threat of COVID-19,” said Sue Fulton, chief administrator of MVC. “We continue to urge eligible customers to renew their licenses and registrations online at NJMVC.gov. “

Drivers are encouraged to conduct all activities they can on the VMC website, which includes renewing driver’s licenses under certain conditions, renewing vehicle registrations, replacing a lost license, changing address and other activities through the NJMVC. online services .

MVC officials are promoting the use of online services to avoid a crisis in motor vehicle dealerships when they reopen.

“We expect volumes to increase once we reopen and when we reach the end of these expansions,” Fulton said.

Transactions that must be done in person include taking written and road exams, issuing learner’s permits, real identity permits and register and re-title a used vehicle purchased from an individual.

MVC officials rejected a call to issue licenses to teen drivers without the need for a driving test, which has been done in other states, due to security concerns.
