State Motor Vehicle Commission officials are now allowing more drivers to make appointments to go to agencies, adding drivers who can’t renew their licenses online to the list on Wednesday.
Drivers and individuals with non-driver’s license ID cards can make an appointment on the commission’s website at NJMVC.gov.
While most license renewals can be completed online, appointments are offered only for people who are not eligible to do so. That also includes drivers who hold a temporary visa or a probationary license, as well as Commercial Drivers.
Appointments are scheduled on a rolling, 30-day basis at https://telegov.njportal.com/njmvc.
MVC officials have added appointments for certain in-person transactions to get people out of long lines at agencies and to reduce wait times that resulted after reopening agencies in July. The largest addition happened Monday when 10 agencies that handle vehicle business were switched to appointments only.
The news comes as six of the state’s 39 agencies are closed due to employees testing positive for the coronavirus.
The vehicle center in Runnemede is not scheduled to reopen until Nov. 17, while the licensing center in Oakland is set to reopen Nov. 13, the MVC said in separate tweets on Wednesday.
