Drivers License and Vehicle Registration Requests Can Be Done Online

The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission today announced it has added to its growing offering of web-based transactions, expanding the types of vehicles eligible for online registration renewals and replacements.COVID-19: Motor Vehicle Commission Adds More Vehicle Registrations To Online Services

The additional vehicle registration categories range from four-year commercial trailers to commuter vans and ATVs. A full list is available at NJMVC.gov.

“We recognize that extended agency closures to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 have caused a hardship for many of our customers,’’ said MVC Chief Administrator Sue Fulton. “While these closures are necessary to protect the health and safety of our customers and employees, the Commission has worked diligently on multiple fronts to offset these hardships, including the addition of key online services.’’

The MVC last month announced online renewal options for two Commercial Registration codes: Code 11 for commercial trucks and tractors, and Code 16 for aggregate haulers in an effort to keep critical supply chains moving during this public health emergency.

The latest addition of vehicle categories announced today means another 50,000-plus transactions can be accomplished online.

This new service comes on top of a set of online processes the MVC created ahead of the launch of REAL ID last spring, where most driver license and motor vehicle registration renewals and replacements were added to reduce the volume of customer foot traffic in agencies, such as the one in Randolph. Customers also can change their address online.

The Commission also is assisting eligible drivers with restoring suspended licenses by using email instead of phone or in-person interactions. Drivers who have been notified of suspension for failure to maintain insurance may get more information by emailing [email protected]. Other drivers who believe they are eligible for restoration should email [email protected].

Fulton previously extended by Administrative Order license and registration expiration dates. However, she cautioned drivers not to wait to complete transactions.
