Lakewood MVC to reopen Friday; Most services available online

The Lakewood MVC will reopen this Friday after being closed for two weeks due to an employee testing positive for COVID.

MVC Online

The MVC now offers over 75% of transactions online at NJMVC.gov. There are nearly 30 online services available at the website, including most renewals for licenses and registrations.

Before scheduling an appointment, customers should first check to see if their transaction can be completed online and skip the trip to an MVC agency.

Scheduling an Appointment for an In-Person Visit

Nearly all in-person transactions at both Licensing Centers and Vehicle Centers require an appointment scheduled at NJMVC.gov.

Appointments are scheduled up to 60 days in advance and are widely available. The MVC has steadily grown the number of appointments, adding thousands each day.

Appointment Cancellations

Any appointments canceled due to an MVC agency closure must be rescheduled on the website. Customers will get an email when their appointment has been canceled.

If a customer can’t make an appointment, it should be canceled using guidance in the MVC’s confirmation email to open the appointment for others.

Renewals

License/ID and registration renewals that can’t be completed online require an appointment. Renewals are not available on a walk-in basis.

Check Your Documents

Customers should check the expiration date on their documents and renew early. Most licenses can be renewed online three months before expiration and most vehicle registrations two months before expiration. If you can’t renew online, make an appointment within the renewal window. Don’t wait until you’re up against an expiration date!

Know Before You Go

Before all MVC visits, customers should log on to NJMVC.gov to check if the agency might be closed because of an employee testing positive for COVID-19, or for any other reason. The MVC has 39 locations to serve customers throughout the state.

Customers can complete many transactions online, schedule appointments, and find out more about MVC operations on the website. Customers can also identify whether a license or vehicle transaction is available online, by appointment, or walk-in by using the MVC “Cheat Sheet” on the home page of the website.

  • Say it like it is says:

    The utterly insane thing is that they keep shutting it down if somebody sneezes. It’s ridiculous already. If somebody gets tested and test positive the whole place doesn’t have to shut down. They don’t have to do a disinfecting. This is ridiculous already. We are more than a year out from the beginning of this craziness and there’s a lot of stuff we already know. The motor vehicle department, as back donkey as they are, doesn’t have to act like it’s still March of 2020!

    I put my plates on top of the box since it was locked, anybody know what to do I didn’t know they were closed
