Frequently Asked Questions
If my learners permit expired while the MVC was closed for business, do I have to buy another one?
If your learner’s permit expired between July 3 and July 7, 2006, the MVC will allow you to take the road test as scheduled and will issue another permit at no fee accordingly.
If my road test was scheduled during the time the MVC was closed for business, when do I get to retake my road test?
For non-commercial road tests: If your test was scheduled for Monday, July 3; Wednesday, July 5; Thursday, July 6; or Friday, July 7, you may visit the same site where it was scheduled, on the same day of the week it was scheduled, at the same time it was scheduled. You may do this during the week of July 10-14 and July 17-21 only. For example, if you were originally scheduled for Wednesday, July 5 at 2 p.m. in Eatontown, you may return to Eatontown at 2 p.m. on Wednesday July 12 or 19.
For commercial road tests: Applicants scheduled for CDL road tests during the week of the closure, should contact the Regional Driver Testing supervisor to be rescheduled. Applicants must have their permit available when calling.

I mailed in my registration renewal application with a check, or renewed online through Access DMV and I have not received my renewed registration.
The MVC did not mail any documents between June 28 and July 9, 2006 due to the flooding of the Delaware River, which was then followed by a government shutdown. It may take about 10 days for registration documents printed during that time to be mailed. If your registration expired June 30, 2006 or expires July 31, 2006, the Administrative Order (see www.NJMVC.gov) extending registrations applies to you. Please wait until July 21. If you have not received your document by then, please call (888) 486-3339.
I changed my address online, in writing, or over the phone in late June/early July. I have not received my change of address label.
If your address has been changed on our system and a mailing label was created, please wait approximately 10 days for your label to arrive in the mail. The MVC did not mail any documents between June 28 and July 9, 2006 due to the flooding of the Delaware River, which was then followed by a government shutdown.

My license, registration, or inspection expired prior to June. Am I covered by the Administrative Order extension?
No. The Administrative Order covers only licenses, registrations, or inspections expiring June 30 or July 31, 2006.
I received a ticket for an expired license, registration or inspection, even though I qualify under the Administrative Order extension. What do I do now?
Take a copy of the Administrative Order with you to your court appearance to demonstrate that you are covered by the extension.
