Senior hours start today at NJMVC for new and used car purchases

Vehicle Centers Hold 2-4PM Tuesday/Thursday for Customers 65+

NEW JERSEY – The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) announced that starting today, September 22, all MVC Vehicle Centers will set aside special hours from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays for customers age 65 and over and those who are medically prohibited from wearing a mask.

These “Senior Hours” will only be for new and used car purchases, at Vehicle Centers. Customers are reminded that no license transactions are processed at Vehicle Centers.

No individual appointments are necessary. Eligible customers should arrive at the agency no earlier than 2:00pm so that they can be ticketed for service and not have to stand in line to be served.

“These designated hours will allow us to protect our vulnerable seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic for one of the very few transactions that require an in-person visit,’’ said MVC Chief Administrator Sue Fulton.

Fulton credited Governor Murphy and a bipartisan team of legislators with helping the MVC make the change in law necessary to bring about the special hours.

Customers who cannot wear a mask must bring a doctor’s note verifying their condition. These customers will be provided with face shields.

The new law, signed by Governor Murphy on September 10, 2020, also extends the validity of all driver license and identification card photographs from a maximum of eight years to a maximum of 12 years. For residents 65 years and older, driver license and ID photographs are permanently valid. The effect is that, even if your notice says you must visit an agency, most customers can renew online at NJMVC.gov .
