Certain coronavirus-related safety precautions and office closures have led to residents throughout the state encountering longer wait times, restricted services and other challenges at New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) agencies during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To help make it easier for local residents to access the motor vehicle services they need outside of the standard MVC office, Assembly Democrats Vincent Mazzeo and John Armato hosted an MVC Mobile Unit Event in Northfield today.
“Many residents have reached out to our office with concerns over the accessibility of important services such as license and registration renewals during this difficult time,” said Assemblyman Armato (D-Atlantic). “I am glad today’s event could help address the needs of many of our community members.”
Residents from all over Atlantic County were able to sign up to renew their license or registration, request a handicap placard, obtain a new license, Real ID or non-driver ID, and/or have their vehicle inspected – among other services – at this mobile MVC location.
“Thank you to the Motor Vehicle Commission for working with us to bring these critical services to members of the community who may have lacked the time or ability to go to an MVC office,” said Assemblyman Mazzeo (D-Atlantic). “Our office is always looking for ways to help constituents with the everyday issues affecting them, so I am pleased so many residents were able to get the assistance they needed today.”
The Assemblymen hosted the event along with the MVC from 10am to 2pm, assisting more than 30 residents throughout its duration.
