Somerville Vehicle Center closed after employee tests positive for COVID-19

NEW JERSEY – The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission has announced the South Plainfield Licensing Center, Edison Licensing Center, and Somerville Vehicle Center are closed due to a single employee testing positive for COVID-19 at each location.

South Plainfield Licensing Center will be closed until Friday, Jan. 15. The employee who tested positive was last in the South Plainfield Center Thursday, Dec. 31.

Edison Licensing Center will be closed until Tuesday, Jan. 12. The employee who tested positive was last in the Edison Center Monday, Dec. 28.

Somerville Vehicle Center will be closed until Friday, Jan. 15. The employee who tested positive was last in the Somerville Center Thursday, Dec. 31.

Seven MVC Centers currently are closed due to an employee testing positive for COVID-19 at each location. These Centers are scheduled to reopen on the following dates:

  • Cherry Hill Vehicle Center – Thursday, Jan. 7
  • Manahawkin Vehicle Center – Tuesday, Jan. 12
  • Toms River Licensing Center – Tuesday, Jan. 12
  • Delanco Licensing Center – Tuesday, Jan. 12
  • Edison Licensing Center – Tuesday, Jan. 12
  • South Plainfield Licensing Center – Friday, Jan. 15
  • Somerville Vehicle Center – Friday, Jan. 15

Customers are reminded that all MVC Vehicle Centers are open by appointment only, with no walk-ins allowed, while MVC Licensing Centers accept walk-in customers for new permits, licenses, and non-driver IDs.

License/ID renewals that cannot be completed online, including for those with visa restrictions, require an appointment. Renewals are not available on a walk-in basis at Licensing Centers.

Appointments at Vehicle and Licensing Centers are scheduled 30 days in advance at NJMVC.gov. The MVC adds thousands of appointments each day, and customers should check online early in the morning and at multiple MVC locations to best secure an appointment.

Customers are further reminded that most basic licenses/IDs and registrations can be renewed online at NJMVC.gov. When you successfully renew online, the renewal goes into effect immediately, and your printable receipt and expired document are valid for driving.

Customers should log on to NJMVC.gov to check the status of locations before visiting any MVC facility and learn more about recent changes at the MVC. Customers also can identify whether a transaction is available online, by appointment, or by walk-in using the “How do I…?” Cheat Sheet in the Quick Links on the MVC home page.
