New Cardiff Agency to Open Monday, January 9

(TRENTON) – The NJ Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) will open a new Cardiff Agency on Monday, January 9, that is almost twice the size of the current location.

Located at 6725 Black Horse Pike in the Shore Mall in Cardiff, Atlantic County, the new agency features increased customer space, more comfortable furniture and other customer-friendly amenities that showcase MVC’s commitment to customer service.

MVC has been upgrading public facilities for almost two years. The new Cardiff Agency is among a growing number of renovated or new agencies around the state, including in Toms River and Manahawkin in Ocean County, the Camden Agency in Camden County, and the Mount Holly Agency in Burlington County.

Currently, MVC is renovating the Somerville Agency in Somerset County and plans to re-open there in mid-February. Other renovations and new agencies are planned.

The Motor Vehicle Commission licenses motorists at 45 locations around the state. In 2006, MVC expects a record number of license renewals at those agencies. Motorists should visit their local motor vehicle agency mid-week and mid-month to avoid the typical rush at the end and beginning of each month.

Another way to avoid the end- and beginning-of-the-month rush at MVC agencies is to complete almost one dozen transactions online at www.njmvc.gov. Renew your registration, pay a restoration fee or parking ticket, order your driver history and obtain personalized plates, all in the comfort of your home.
