The NJ MVC reminds New Jersey residents that the agency now offers about 75 percent of transactions, including most renewals for licenses and registrations, online at NJMVC.gov.
Before scheduling an appointment, the NJ MVC recommends that customers first check to see if their transaction can be completed online. However, if your transaction requires you to schedule an in-person appointment, you can schedule one at NJMVC.gov. Appointments are scheduled up to 60 days in advance and are widely available. The MVC has more than doubled daily appointments for license and registration renewals recently. Additionally, any appointments canceled due to an MVC location closure must be rescheduled on the website.
