NJ extends license, registration expiration dates

23 Mar 2020 | 03:37

    The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) has extended expiration dates for drivers licences, registrations, and inspections in response to COVID-19 outbreak. All residents with a license, registration, or vehicle inspection due for renewal by May 31 will receive an automatic two-month extension. Goal is to reduce the numbers of people going to NJMVC.

    From the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission:

    For expiration dates falling in March, the renewal deadline is extended to May; for expiration dates falling in April, the renewal deadline is extended to June; for expiration dates falling in May, the renewal deadline is extended to July.

    By law, Chief Administrator Fulton has the authority to extend expiration dates when a State of Emergency has been declared. Governor Murphy declared a State of Emergency and Public Health Emergency on March 9 as part of the state’s coordinated response to limit the spread of COVID-19.

    The NJMVC continues to encourage those customers who are eligible to conduct online transactions, including license renewals, vehicle registrations and change of address, to do so by visiting NJMVC.gov. Customers should check NJMVC.gov for the latest information and updates.

    Effective immediately, the NJMVC grants a two-month extension for:
    Driver licenses expiring in March, April, and May
    Registrations expiring in March, April, and May
    Inspection stickers expiring in March, April, and May
