Amid MVC Crisis, Murphy Extends License, Inspection, Registration Expiration Dates

TRENTON, NJ – Amid the growing crisis that is plaguing New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission offices statewide, Governor Phil Murphy has extended expiration dates for drivers licenses, registrations, inspections, stickers, and temporary tags.

If your motor vehicle license or registration expired between March 13th and May 31st, you will now have until September 30th to renew.

If your documents or credentials expire between June 1st and August 31st, you will have until December 31st to renew.

These extensions are automatic and no further action would need to be taken by the resident for the extension.

“We want to give customers more time to renew,” Murphy said. “These are automatic extensions before you head out to an MVC agency, check online to see if your transaction can be completed online.”

Lines at the state agency’s offices have extended in some cases nearly one mile in this past week’s high heat and humidity.

“We are taking steps to mitigate overcrowding, but MVC is not going to get to everyone in line every day,” Murphy said. “I’m not happy either, but please don’t take it out on MVC employees. None of us are happy the way this week has gone.”
