New Jersey Drivers are Getting Another 2-Month Extension from Motor Vehicle Agency
Amid the coronavirus outbreak, drivers in New Jersey with expired documents are being given another two-month extension.
While many renewal services are available online, Motor Vehicle Agencies are closed. So, expiring licenses, registrations, inspection stickers, and temporary tags remain valid.
Motor Vehicle Commission chief administration Sue Fulton tells NJ.com, “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. We continue to urge eligible customers to renew their licenses and registrations online at NJMVC.gov.”
Woohoo! Because with everything going on, I forgot that my car registration was up at the end of April, and my husband's truck needed to be inspected by the end of March!
Governor Phil Murphy recently stated that gatherings, like anywhere lines of people may form, won't be permitted until the final stages of reopening the state post-pandemic, and that includes Motor Vehicle Commission, NJ.com reports. So here's what you can expect:
- If your license, registration, inspection sticker or temporary tag expires between March 13 and May 31, they now expire on July 31.
- All documents expiring June 30 have been extended two months to August 31
- Documents expiring July 31 are extended to Sept. 30
Just an FYI, online you can complete services like driver’s license renewal (under certain conditions), renew vehicle registration, replace a lost license, and change an address. It's probably the best option anyway because once the MVC DOES reopen to the public, I'm sure it will be mobbed.
