Active duty military personnel and veteransNew Jersey provides special consideration for active duty military personnel. Special privileges are also available for service-disabled or blind veterans.
If you are on active military duty and have been deployed, including New Jersey National Guard and Reserve, you and your immediate family are entitled to automatic extensions for your driver license, registration and inspection requirements.
Law enforcement officials are aware of this extension. Please carry the Administrative Order along with your active duty military credentials at all times when operating a vehicle. See Related Links above for extension instructions to obtain the Deployed Military Administrative Order.
If you enter or are an active member of the U.S. Armed Forces and have a valid New Jersey registration, you can get a refund for the remainder of the registration period.
